Zippity Zoom Toys will not be closing their doors!
"An important announcement to our customers, suppliers and our community.
Wow... It has been an emotional few weeks since our recent announcement, and I can’t tell you how overwhelmingly touching it has been to hear the responses from our customers as they come in the door—of how the store would truly be missed.
When I opened the store in 2009, the hopes that anyone would come though our doors and enjoy this little shop, has now come to a place that I didn’t think it would ever be, a place that the community really enjoys for so many reasons.
The most touching response from parents is that their kids think of our toy store, as their toy store...which is no different than what my own sons think.
These kids have all grown up and shopped here for the past 10 years. That really creates a special memory, that like all of us, we cherish and want to hold on to.
After our announcement we were very surprised to have had several people contact us with hopes of continuing on with the toy store, wanting to keep it in the community and remain open. The final request came in over this past weekend to take over the toy store and (wait for it...) it was from our own daughter Dajarra who was away on holidays after the Christmas season.
As a family, we sat down and talked about all of it with her and she said she thought a lot about it, and has decided she wants to continue on with Zippity Zoom Toys as its owner.
It’s a big decision, and she needed some time to think about it, and I can’t blame her, it can be a daunting task, knowing that I want to step away.
Dajarra has been with me every step of the way for 10 years so I know she will be able to continue on with the store. I am super excited for her and very proud of her. I know she will make the store as amazing as it was, if not more.
So looking forward...we have exciting news to share with you ..... Zippity Zoom Toys will not be closing its doors. I will still move on to my next chapter, and we happily leave this book open in the hands of our daughter to write her own story. Dajarra will take over the toy store starting In February, creating her own take on Zippity Zoom Toys.
Whether you are phoning in, messaging, or walking in the front door, you can be assured you will receive the same great customer service, product knowledge and the same quality products, only now, with her special twist.
Our business hours will continue as follows for now:
Monday-Saturday 10:00 am to 5:00 pm until she has time to adjust to her new role.
For those wondering: We will still continue to run a sale until Dajarra takes over the store (so until February 2) as a big thank-you to our customers for all the support we’ve received.
Thanks again for all the community support and I hope you continue to think of Zippity Zoom Toys as your favourite local toy store. Thank you so much for all of your wishes, reactions, sharing and thoughts."
