Introducing The Centre Gift Shop!

Its sparkly, new and you can walk right through! The Centre, home of Lexus Escondido, has been busy with a special project that will provide the community with some retail therapy. We are excited to announce the opening of The Centre Gift Shop, housed in the heart of the Lexus Escondido service center.

Judy Jones-Cone, President of Lexus Escondido, explains her vision behind the gift shop, “I have always wanted to create a vibrant Lexus retail experience that entertains and excites our guests. It is important to me that they enjoy their time with us.”

With The Centre, Mrs. Jones-Cone has taken the car buying experience to a whole new level with entertainment, hospitality, and unparalleled service. She calls it AutoJoyment, and that’s exactly what you get at The Centre! From grabbing a cappuccino at Culture Craft Coffee & Espresso as you peruse through the newest Lexus models, to getting your hair and nails done on the second floor Rock ‘n’ Hair Salon, to having lunch with friends at the Vintana Wine & Dine to now finding that perfect gift for someone on your way to a party after getting your car serviced. “We strive not only for excellence in product and service, but also to make it entertaining and exciting to do business with Lexus Escondido. The Centre Gift Shop is one component of our fulfillment of the AutoJoyment experience at Lexus Escondido,” explains Mrs. Jones-Cone.

Among the numerous brands The Centre Gift Shop will be carrying are Beekman, goats milk beauty products, Kate Spade purses and accessories, Blue Planet sun readers and sunglasses, Shiraleah apparel, Tea Forte tea accessories, and Roost jewelry.

Tracie Weston, manager of The Centre Gift Shop boasts about the variety of items, “Aside from providing merchandise that meets your every gift need, I also tried to buy local, sustainable and charitable merchandise when selecting my vendors to make our store more genuine and unique in its offering to the community.”

This gift shop definitely has something special about it; with the beautiful space, an immediate weight is lifted. It may be the soft glow of the accent lighting or the pleasing visual appearance of the products in store or the smiling faces of the gift shop attendants, but whatever it is The Centre Gift Shop is sure to put a smile on your face.
