Holiday Open House along Girard benefits charity


Merchants in the 7700 and 7800 blocks of Girard Avenue got together on Sunday for their annual Holiday Open House. Started 60 years ago to mark the opening of Adelaide’s store in La Jolla, the event expanded to include a number of merchants: Ascot Shop, Warwick’s, Girard Gourmet, Burns Drugs, Meanleys’ Hardware and Geppetto’s. Each merchant gave a share of their proceeds from the day’s sales to a charity.
