Kudos to La Jolla’s Burns Drugs, Bowers Jewelers

[gallery]Kudos to a couple more of our local merchants — at stores that have been part of the Girard Avenue scene since 1962 — who are putting spirit into the holiday season.

At Burns Drugs, where the window is all dressed up in white and gold, owner Wayne Woods said, “We want the windows to look pretty to entice people to keep their business in La Jolla.”

Up the street at Bowers Jewelers which opened in 1945 at another La Jolla location, the Dickens Village has been a part of the La Jolla holidays for years. Sheila Bowers, who owns the store with her husband Larry, said the love to do it because it “makes the kids smile.”
