About Us

I am extending to everyone my thoughts and prayers during this time of uncertainty in our world. As a store owner, I have been closely monitoring the everchanging development, especially as it relates to keeping my store essential and operating during this pandemic. My temporary store hours during this time are 9am-5pm Monday – Friday, closed on Saturday & Sunday. If you are a Boxholder, please try to use your key for access to your mailbox. I am cleaning all mailboxes, front surfaces & inside. We are Bird Rock & San Diego & we will get through this together.

Thank you,

Owner Anita Wood attributes her success to the specialness of the community and its residents. “It’s such a great place to come to work every day,” says Wood. “Work doesn’t seem like work here—and I’m always hearing great stories from my customers.”

Anita’s store at 5666 La Jolla Boulevard is flanked by restaurants, clothing boutiques, coffeehouses, juice bars, exercise studios, and other specialty stores. “I’ve always loved the friendly atmosphere of this unique business district,” Anita says.

Wood bought the business on February 21, 1987. “I knew I wanted to work for myself, so when the opportunity came along, I jumped on it. My only regret was not doing it sooner.” The services offered by the  previous owner were stamps (no postage metering), UPS, mailbox rentals, and “word processing.” Anita expanded her offerings over the years to include shipping of all sorts, scanning, printing, and copying.

La Jolla Mailbox Rentals is the oldest business on the 5600 block. The future of the store? “I look forward to serving this wonderful neighborhood for many more years,” Anita says with a smile.
