Imaginuity celebrates fourth Neighborhood Toy Store Day
On Nov. 9, Imaginuity will join more than 600 stores across the country to celebrate the fourth annual Neighborhood Toy Store Day.
“This is an extra special day at the Imaginuity, this year, as we’re also celebrating the grand opening of our
brand new store in downtown Rhinelander,” Kay Hatch, member of ASTRA and owner of the Imaginuity specialty toy stores, said. “As part of the festivities, we’ll have in-store specials, raffle prizes, and refreshments. We’re also planning art/craft stations and demonstrations, including FunLoom, the ever popular rubber band loom.”
Independent toy stores can even help find top toys for the children on any list this holiday season with help from The 2013 Best Toys for Kids Award list. With the expert understanding of how kids play, this list is created by ASTRA members, and features toys that deliver the highest value, inviting imaginative discovery and encouraging creative thinking.
Consumers can be confident that more of the dollars spent in local, independently-owned stores, stay in the community-25 percent more in contrast with national chains, according to the 3/50 Project.
Resident business owners put money and energy back into the community in the form of everything from tax dollars to charity donations to participating in local initiatives through civic associations and area chambers of commerce.
Both the Minocqua and Rhinelander Imaginuity store locations offer a personal shopping experience, and there are many demo products and games for customers to play with.
“Not only can our knowledgeable sales staff help you find the perfect game or gift, we can wrap it up for you, too,” Hatch said.
