To our valued customers:
After almost 20 years in business, Ted's Toy Store permanently closed in March, 2015. This has been a very difficult choice to make, but various factors have contributed to this decision. There are other avenues to pursue and owning a retail establishment is all-consuming. The community of Madeira and surrounding neighborhoods have been very supportive. The brick and mortar specialty toy store has become somewhat of a "dinosaur" in the age of online shopping. The online competition is fierce and the current business model has become unsustainable.
It has been a tremendous opportunity and experience to be able to own a toy store in such a great community as Madeira, and I will miss it.
I am most grateful to all of you for your loyalty and support through the years.
Ted Gardner, Owner
