November 4, 2009 (El Cajon) – Through this holiday shopping season, East County magazine will be profiling unique shops and shopping districts in our region. I recently discovered Glamour Girlz Boutique at 124 East Main Street in downtown El Cajon, a delightful place to find chic, upscale clothing and accessories at affordable prices. Sweet! It’s not hard to see how this local store was voted second best women’s clothing store in our region – after Macy’s—in an East County Californian reader poll.
 

This Friday, the store celebrates its third anniversary (and El Cajon’s “First Friday” fete) starting at 6 p.m. Bring in this flyer for a 10% discount--and be sure to tell them you heard about Glamour Girlz in East County Magazine!
