Toy stores across America, including Richfield's long-standing , will launch the holiday shopping season by hosting in-store events for the community Saturday, Nov. 12.
The annual event, sponsored by American Specialty Toy Retailing Association (ASTRA), aims to get community members to see stores as a vital part of the community and to shop local, according to the event website.
Hub Hobby's Todd Andersen told Patch the store would have games, prizes and product demonstrations through the entire day, as well as face painting and balloon twisting from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The event is free and open to the public. For a list of other stores participating, go to neighborhoodtoystoreday.com.
