HISTORY

A BEVERLY HILLS LANDMARK

 

Francis-Orr Beverly Hills is a fine stationery and gift store once located at 320 North Camden Drive, one block west of Rodeo Drive, within the Beverly Hills Golden Triangle. Once recognized as Beverly Hills oldest store, it was founded by Estelle Francis and Estella Orr in 1924 as a haven for personal stationery, gifts, and office supplies.

The store then spent 35 years on North Rodeo Drive, before moving in 1974 to 320 North Camden Drive.  It was proven to be a favored destination store of celebrated Angelenos past and present, as well as visitors to the city and local citizens.  U.S. presidents have shopped at our store along with celebrities you know and love.  The Guss family, who has owned Francis-Orr for over half a century, takes pride in serving their longtime, satisfied patrons and looks forward to welcoming new ones.
