On this date in 1966, the local retail chain, Uncle Al’s Toy Korral celebrated the opening of their new Seal Beach store by offering a toy sale at their Tustin location as shown in this ad from The Tustin News.
Uncle Al’s Toy Korral started in Long Beach in 1957 and once expanded to four locations in the sixties. When it went out of business in 1977, all that remained was the original Long Beach store on Spring Street.
