A La Carte has been part of Erie History for 50 years.

The Company's motto is, "A Gift For Every Occasion".

It's been a family affair over the years.

Four daughters of the original owner have all worked in the store.

A La Carte recently celebrated its 50th year in business.

The original focus was on stationary and needle point items, but that certainly changed over the years,

The business was heavily damaged by fire in 1996 and it took six months for it to re-open.

The unique store is located on 2624 West 8th Street.

It's open from 10:00 am until 5:30 Monday-Saturday.
