Looking for that special Halloween costume? We went to one of the South Bays oldest costume store, Aaardvark in Redondo Beach to check out some of the new styles.
Aaardvark began in 1972 selling primarily vintage clothing. The Hermosa Beach store was the first in a chain of “Aaardvark’s Odd Ark” stores, selling vintage clothing before vintage became mainstream. Jon & Donna McCormack worked for the original owner for 12 years before buying the store in 1984. They kept the name, but shortened it to “Aaardvark”.
