I received this notification yesterday:
Jacques is closing, 30 years as a Teacher/Toy Store.(I
stop by this store when I visit my daughters in TX.)
How many Teacher Stores are left? How many have we lost...
Let me tell you, it is Scary! Here at Best, we had hoped that after the Bradburn Stores had closed...we would be safe, we could breathe a sigh of relief. Although sorry for them, we thought we had finally "made it". Not so, it is a constant challenge, NO retailer can make it work with only 2 good months out of the year.
We understand you have options, and you're BUSY. We hear the words, Amazon, Target, Dollar Tree, Joannes, and more-- all the time. We get it! We are working folk too with families with hectic schedules and responsibilities.
BUT...in order for US to be here for YOU we need your support. You don't need to purchase EVERY item here. I mean it would be great--- but you can help in other ways too.
Help us spread the word,1. could you leave a catalog in the workroom? We accept purchase orders and have an on-line catalog.2. share our emails or facebook page
3. recommend us to parents- we love to help parents find ways to help their child that is struggling, special needs OR gifted.
4. we have tons of great toys and games, if you need a gift for a child...We have a huge Melissa and Doug Selection, Fidget Items, Art materials and much more.
5. let us know what you are looking for, how WE can improve.
As you know, we appreciate every bit of support, every purchase, kind word, all or it! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for EVERYTHING!!! We plan to be here for you for a long, long time!
