With the Christmas season quickly approaching, independently owned toy stores across the country are celebrating Neighbourhood Toy Store Day Saturday (Nov. 12).
Nanaimo’s Kool and Child, at 102-2517 Bowen Rd., is taking part in the national event from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., offering a store-wide scavenger hunt, the great Perplexus Challenge, a chance to win tickets to see Norman Foote at the Port Theatre Nov. 17 and a West Coast Winter Family Fun gift basket.
Partial proceeds from every sale go to the Nanaimo-Ladysmith Schools Foundation.
The foundation makes sure students have the best chance to succeed in school and in life, Carolyn Kool, owner of Kool and Child, said in a press release.
“Neighbourhood Toy Store Day is an opportunity to get to know your local toy store, have fun with your kids, experience the expertise and quality offered by the owners and staff of toy stores, get some cool gift ideas for this holiday season, and feel great about supporting your community with every purchase,” she said.
