November 25th in Seal Beach History

On this date in 1962, the Southland Magazine section of the Long Beach Independent ran a full page ad advertising Seal Beach shops under the following banner:

Here are the ads for the ten individual shops and restaurants:

Village Bazaar at 137 1/2 Main Street

Kiddie Land at 133 1/2 Main Street

Herron’s Sportwear at 214 Main Street

Kiko’s at 909 Ocean Avenue

Fishing Headquarters at the foot of the pier

Ches’ Men’s Store at 211 Main Street

John’s Mens Shop at 322 Main Street

Village Bake Shop at 137 Main Street

Bay Hardware at 215 Main Street

K&R Scandinavian Imports at 322 Main Street

At the bottom of the page, a footer read:
Fifty-five years later only the Bay Hardware is still in business.
