About Us

jon-headshotWelcome to Mailbox Toluca Lake, where we pride ourselves on fast, friendly service. If you’ve been to the store, we are probably familiar with each other – I like to think of my customers as my friends, and I’d like to thank you again for stopping by.

If you haven’t been by the store, or you’d like to know more about me, here goes…

I grew up in Los Angeles and received a business degree from Cal State Northridge. My first position was in sales, product development and marketing for a domestic manufacturing company.

Within a year, I had gotten involved with the garment trade and opened my own sales offices in New York City and Los Angeles. I imported for many national and regional retailers, including Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s, Saks Department Stores, Federated Group, JC Penney, Dillard’s, Macy’s, Sports Authority / Sport Mart, Wal-Mart, QVC, Goody’s Family Clothing, Big 5 private label, and many more.

After 16 years, I decided to return to California and try something different, so I acquired Mailbox Toluca Lake and transformed it from an ordinary mailbox & postal center into a trendy high-end gift shop.

Of course, I’ve left out the best part – my beautiful wife Laurie (who works in the business with me) and my son Jason and daughter Jessica. While I truly love running the business and meeting each of you in the store, nothing compares to the joy that my family gives me day in and day out…mbt-extsm

So that’s a little about me. If you haven’t introduced yourself in the store, I hope now that we’re not strangers, you’ll feel free to do so. Thanks for your valued support – it means a lot to me and my family.
