Harry & David Now Open In Costa Mesa
After they shuttered the last Harry & David shop in the Market Place, we were kind of bummed. It was one of those places we'd wander into just to see what seasonal confections and coordinating decor was on sale-- like a Hallmark store for food.
We came across their new, albeit temporary spot on the first floor of South Coast Plaza, next door to Henri Bendel (For those who don't speak "Mall", that's next to the escalators). The first sign of Christmas was grandiose, with colorful gift displays mounted everywhere. Hickory Farms who?
They opened two Saturdays ago, selling their wares through the holiday season. If patrons show enough Moose Munch love, perhaps longer, according to the salesperson handing out chocolate samples. We'll take this over Calendar Club any day.
