When the new location is up and running, they hope to become an officially licensed Lego dealer, to add to their trade in collectible toys from the 1970s to the present. Toy hunters can find a Star Wars X-Wing Fighter, a plethora of GI Joe action figures (and gear) along with the latest hot toys from current manufacturers.
“We actually get things before [big box retailers], because they have everything sent to big distribution warehouses before it goes out to the stores,” Todd said. “And we usually sell [new toys] for about the same price.”
Collectors come back because of their constantly updated stock of hard-to-find items, but local parents have come to see the business as a good place to get in-demand toys, without having to hazard the holiday shopping crowds, the Jordans say.
Downtown was appealing, they said, in part because of the new businesses there. The couple is planning to live above their storefront.
“Down [U.S] 31, there’s lots of traffic, but there’s no community,” Todd said. “We’d lived downtown before, and we liked it. Now it’s especially appealing, with all of the improvements they’ve made.”
