REMEMBER WHEN there were TWO Thrifty Drugstores in Pacific Beach — Thrifty Junior, where CVS is today in Pacific Plaza, as well as the “big” Thrifty on the site of today’s Trader Joe’s? They were famous for their 5¢ ice cream cones — or were they 25¢? I always loved the story about used-car dealer Ed Scholder filling up a school bus he’d acquired — I think the Scholder and Wilding clans pretty much filled it up — then pulling up in front of Thrifty and descending on the poor little ice-cream cone girl. I took this photo on the first day of June in 1983.

they were 5 cents per scoop. he usually spent about 2 dollars to satisfy the 40 of us. we would cruise the beach and then go to kate sessions for some runnin around.
