Have you ever received a last minute invite to an impromptu birthday dinner? Do you remember asking yourself what you’d wear and, more importantly, what you’d bring along as a present? This happened recently on a Friday evening, and we’re here to tell you what saved the night.
Presented with the absolute need to buy something cute for a dear friend on a Friday at 6:30 pm, one really wonders where to go in the vicinity of the Glendora Village. Honey by J Bee, on the corner of Glendora Avenue and Foothill Blvd., turned out to be a lifesaver.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Honey by J Bee is one of two boutiques (the other one is in South Pasadena) that specialize in women’s clothing and accessories. It has cute and trendy clothes that you won’t see at other stores, and lots of Zodiac products (like t-shirts) donning whatever the sign of the month may be. There is a bit of everything here, including shoes, sunglasses, rings, necklaces, scarves, and so forth.
GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE
Even at 6:30 pm (the store closes at 7) you are greeted and helped enthusiastically. We found some lovely “M” earrings for our friend, quite delicate, exquisitely presented in a small box and, also importantly, at a good price. The attendant went out of her way to make it look good, dressing the gift with lots of tissue paper inside a nice looking bag. In a matter of 15 minutes, we were on our way to the birthday dinner confident and satisfied. Try Honey by J Bee the next time you want to shop for something unique without leaving town. The store is located at 100 N. Glendora Ave., Unit 106, in Glendora CA 91741. They’re open 11 am to 7 pm weekdays and until 4 pm on Sundays. You can also shop online at shopjbee.com.
