Our store is for sale!

Dear Friends & Valued Customers,

Last year, the franchise owner of Learning Express Toys of Westborough, Tina, retired and moved to Florida. As an employee of the franchisor, Learning Express, I wanted to see the store remain open and thrive well into the future. After all, it's been in the community since 2005. I purchased Tina's store fixtures and equipment and renewed the lease with our local landlord, Paul, all with the intention of passing the store location on to its next owners this year.

It's hard to believe it, but that time has come. I very much enjoy running the Westborough location and have come to know some of you personally. This will be what I miss the most. Seeing your children smile when we have a craft event or a visit from Peppa is what makes this job so worthwhile.

For those of you who shop us frequently, I think you'll agree that the store is in great shape. My husband, Mike, our team and I put in a lot of time and effort into making the store look great, and we brought in 100% brand new inventory last year. I continue to buy new inventory as it comes available, and I plan to continue running this business full steam ahead, even if we do not find a suitable buyer. I'm headed to Toy Fair in New York City on Thursday to find the next hot product!

That said, I know from my purchase of the franchise last year that there are many people in the greater Westborough community who might be interested in owning this business. I have 3 and 4 year-old boys (John & Robby), but maybe you have kids that are a little older, or maybe you've been looking for something of your own but wanted to remain local to the area and do something in the community.

I won't sugarcoat it. Owning a toy store is a tough job. There are lots of heavy boxes, long holiday hours, and there is lots of time spent analyzing reports and trying to get the best products in the store. Thankfully, I'm extremely lucky to have a great staff helping every day in the store, and I also have the backing of the Learning Express franchise corporate team that helps me find great products and design & send out catalogs and other mailers to you, our valued customers.

I want to personally thank you and the greater Westborough community that has made this store into what it is today. I am the third steward of Learning Express Westborough, and I want to see the next owner continue to make it a wonderful space for kids and their families. I'm sad to let the store go, but, luckily, I'm not going anywhere. Mike, my boys and I will likely frequent the store!

If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity, please request franchise information or contact me directly.

Here's to many more years of Learning Express Toys of Westborough!

Lauren Derse
Owner, Learning Express of Westborough

At Learning Express Toys, we aim to provide our customers with a lively, interactive shopping experience that delights the young and the young at heart. We take great pride in calling ourselves a "Neighborhood Toy Store" because we are just that - a hub of activity, a meeting spot for friends and neighbors, a place where we get to know you and your children by name. On any given day of the week, you'll find us doing what we do best: Just playing around. Stop by and we're sure to be demoing games (have we showed you how to play Spot It yet?), riding around on Plasma Cars, and providing a friendly, hands-on atmosphere for all.

If you've visited our store, you know that our toy experts are passionate about play. Providing toy suggestions for children of all ages is a favorite pastime of ours, and we're committed to helping you find the perfect toy for every occasion. We carefully evaluate the play value of every toy that goes out on our shelves, and our product mix is selected from toy manufacturers around the world. When you visit our store, you'll find classic favorites as well as recently discovered treasures.

These days, we know that parents are busy and kids' schedules are jam packed. As such, we aim to make your shopping experience at Learning Express as hassle free as possible. Year round we provide free gift wrapping, offer complimentary personalization, and run a Birthday Box gift registry program.

We would love to be your local neighborhood toy store in Westborough, MA; we hope you'll stop by and visit us soon!
