VERY NORTH COUNTY

Solana Beach’s Cedros Soles is celebrating the big 2-0 in style

In the heart of North County’s Cedros Avenue, Cedros Soles is at the top of our list. Step inside and you’re bound to be drawn to something from the well-curated mix of clothing and accessories—items that are on trend now but also are made to last.

Besides its expansive space dedicated to women, the store has departments for men and kids. Everything is geared to the North County lifestyle. Basic, quality pieces you keep reaching for in your closet for many years, because they never go out of style. “Our roots are in North County San Diego,” explains co-owner, Stephanie Stock. “I grew up in Encinitas and love our coastal towns. The casual vibe of the beach and surf is natural for me and I think the store reflects this. If you need jeans, T-shirts, and fabulous sweaters, we are the place to go.”

This May, when Cedros Soles observes its twentieth anniversary, they’ll have to do without the major party Stephanie would have thrown prior to the pandemic. “We’re going to get creative and find ways to thank our amazing customers for keeping us around so long,” Stephanie says. “Being closed during COVID-19 deprived us of the relationships we have cultivated over all these years. It makes me realize how many customers we count as friends.”

In lieu of popping champagne corks, the plan is to pop out a wall. “We are going to take down the wall separating the space between our women’s and men’s and kids’ retail spaces and make the store flow as one large space,” Stephanie says. “It will be a great way to celebrate all of our product assortment, our loyal customers, and our twentieth year as a business in this beautiful community.”
