Wanted to let folks who care about Aquarium Stock Company know that the Los Angeles store at 8700 Beverly, which has been vacant for a few years, is slated for demolition for a senior living facility. The city has failed to include it in the list of potential historic resources, despite the charming moderne sail sign and the cultural significance of the work done there. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Veia, if you have any vintage photos of the Beverly store, I would love to see and share them with the community. My grandparents had a shoe store in the 7300 block of Beverly, and it's sad to see one of these lovely old L.A. storefronts vanish. -Kim

Reading all of these posts about the Aquarium Stock Company in NYC warms my heart. My Father, Leonard Berkitz, own and ran ASC after taking over the business from his Father. He went on to open a second location in Los Angeles. Neither stores are around anymore, but my Father shared so many fond memories of this family business.
