|And love is literally in the air at 140 N. Larchmont. |
We can't emphasize that enough.
Can you believe it... our Larchmont shop at 140 opened 4 years ago today? We're sure you all already know this (your calendars are marked, right? No? Well, that's okay!), but in case you didn't, we are having a small celebration in honor of our big day with treats, balloons, and raffles going on. Four fun, enriching, and happy years. That's gotta be something like 28 years in small business years. During those four years, we've acquired a sibling in the form of our Manhattan Beach shop, which is coincidentally having a tremendous sale this weekend, as well as the arrival of our somewhat conjoined twin shop at 144 N. Larchmont this past October. We've lost count of the times we've heard a child squeal with glee, "Look! It's a TOOOOOY store!", or the ever popular comment of adults, "Hey! I remember this! I didn't even know they made this anymore... this is awesome!". There have been approximately 1.5 million smiles seen, a few teary meltdowns over having to wait 'til a birthday for that certain Lego set that is soooo cool, and enough gift bags wrapped to stretch from here to Antarctica and back again. None have come back with real penguins, just to dispel that rumor going around. But most importantly, in those four years since we opened our doors, we've become a part of the Larchmont community and truly feel like when we see our regular customers coming in that we are greeting old friends. We love it when people come in just to say Hi and tell us about what achievements their kids have earned since we last saw them. We also appreciate the feedback that you have given us, and we've done our best to put it to good use. Our new teen/tween/adult section across the register at 140 N. Larchmont was entirely your suggestion, and it's been a huge hit with us and our customers (we are so excited about some of the news goodies coming in for that section this spring). And opening up our location at 144 N. Larchmont could never have happened had you not celebrated each and everyday with us that we are open.

In the meantime, we thank you all for supporting small businesses and organizations, and with that support, we fully expect to continue to celebrate our doors being open to you!
