Luan’s Girls Dress Shop Says, “Goodbye”

Bixby Knolls

Dress from Luan’s Dress Shop – Bixby Knolls

A treasured Bixby Knolls tradition comes to an end after 62 years. Luan’s, a boutique girls dress shop closes its doors. The store was found in 1952 by Luan’s mother, Marion, but Luan took it over in 1982. She said she was raised to run the store, and now she is ready to retire.

The store was one of kind. Luan sold classic dresses for every special occasion, and they never went out of style. The dresses were beautiful, and the customer service was exceptional. Not only would Luan help little girls find the perfect party dress, she would press it before it left the store.

Just like the unique dress shop, so is the neighborhood Luan’s called home. Bixby Knolls is also one of a kind. It connects North Long Beach to the North, California Heights to the South East, and Wrigley to the South West. There are several small retail shops and restaurants down Atlantic Blvd., a main artery through Bixby Knolls.
