Toy Store Closing?

Is it true that the old Toy Store in Concord center has closed? How sad if this is so. Over many years we have taken children and grandchildren there to get something special with their vacation money when we were in the Concord/Lexington area. It was just part of the charm, atmosphere, and history of a visit to Concord. More fun for the little ones than the Bridge!

SouthieGirl and BooKat, Thanks for the positive reply. Glad to hear they are just relocating. It does seem like a loss for Concord center though. It was a favorite stop for many of us tourists as we walked around the town. Hope the owners are successful in their new location. I wonder why they moved out of the center? That seemed like such a perfect site for all those years.

Apparently they moved because they got a bill from their landlord for $80,000 dating back 5 years.
