North bound Jimmy Durante Boulevard is closed due to a landslide just south of our shop and it now appears that the work to stabilize the hillside may continue well into the summer. The closure complicates traveling north out of Del Mar. Alternative routes are either Camino Del Mar (Coast Hwy) with its many boulevard stops or accessing I-5 North at Del Mar Heights Road.
Some say the road will be open by May 31st when the Del Mar Fair opens but, if so, repair work will have to slow down which means actual repairs and road closures could last until Thanksgiving or longer. In any case, our customers are having difficulty getting in and out of our shop, especially in the afternoons when traffic gets heavy. This will only get worse when the Fair opens.
The Fair will run from May 31st through Thursday, July 4th. Then horse racing begins Wednesday, July 17th. Both the fair and horse races will be closed Mondays & Tuesdays.
In an attempt to better accommodate our Del Mar customers we are shifting our working hours so that we open at 7 am and close at 4 pm. We hope that this will allow many of those customers to get in and out before the heavy traffic.
So effective May 20th,
NEW HOURS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE: MONDAY THRU FRIDAY, 7AM TIL 4PM.
