We all know how important that it is to shop local. At least once per day, I hear a commercial on the radio reminding me to shop local and to support our community. I try my best, and sometimes the convenience of shopping big box stores and online gets to me, but I do try to shop local.
One great way of shopping local is to participate in this years Neighborhood Toy Store Day on Saturday, November 10th. This year is the third annual, and why not use it to get a jump start on holiday shopping? Shopping at your neighborhood toy store has a lot of benefits, you're able to find fun items that some big box stores don't generally carry. At the same time supporting a small business that needs appreciative, repeat customers.
Stores participating in Neighborhood Toy Store day will have special events going on as well, such as crafts, performances, discounts and more. With the chill of fall approaching, its a great way to get out of the house and do something different, since beach days are gone for the season.
