Andover, MA, August 25, 2023 – Join Learning Express Toys, the nation’s largest specialty toy retailer, for a fun-filled, weekend-long Grand Opening celebration at its newly reopened location in Andover, MA, Friday, September 8th through Sunday, September 10th. The weekend will kick off with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday at 1pm followed by activities, discounts, giveaways, Pipedream cupcake truck and appearances from beloved children’s characters such as Bluey, Spiderman, Barbie and Elsa throughout the weekend.
Owner Sarah Ashworth is excited to reopen a local favorite saying, “We are so excited to be bringing such an institution back to the community. My kids and I were here for every birthday party as they were growing up. I am looking forward to partnering with the local schools, PTO, and other businesses to see how we can all help each other.”
On the value of visiting a local toy store, Ashworth continued, “My family has run a seasonal toy store in Perkins Cove in Ogunquit, ME for the last 13 years and we have seen first-hand the joy that a toy store can bring. A local toy store is a special place for families to celebrate the magic of childhood – a birthday, the holidays, a stellar report card, dance recital, graduation or where children come to spend their hard earned allowance. We are so thrilled to bring the magic of a Learning Express Toy store back to the Andover community and surrounding towns.”
Like its other 90+ toy store locations, Learning Express Toys of Andover sets itself apart from the “big-box” stores by carrying unique toys with high play value and exclusive products that focus on the toys and gifts kids want. The store also provides complimentary services such as free gift wrapping, in-store events, personalization of a variety of items, and a “birthday box” children’s gift registry.
