Today The Forgotten Toy Box, located at the intersection of Front and Centre Streets in Freeland right next to Stefanik's Music Center, will be holding their Grand Opening event.
The event will run from 1pm to 9pm and offer snacks and refreshments.
Via the Forgotten Toy Box Grand Opening Facebook event:
"TOY's TOY's & MORE TOY's !!!
The store carries an impressive selection of both new and vintage toys.
Hazleton News 1 had the opportunity to browse the store (many times), and discovered many nostalgic items from our youth along with popular new items such as LOL Dolls and Tsum Tsums.
Due to Pokemon Go's recent short-lived popularity, Pokemon items could be considered "popular", however many of the items at The Forgotten Toy Box are vintage 90's items in excellent in-box condition.
A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at 1pm. In attendance will be Freeland Mayor John Budda, Officers from the Freeland Police, representatives from Freeland Borough Council, and representatives from the Freeland Chamber of Commerce. Confirmed news agencies include the Standard Speaker, and Hazleton News 1.
The Forgotten Toy Box buys used toys thus has a constant flow of new items available. The phone number is 570-359-5865. For the GPS savvy, the address is 737 Front Street Freeland, just a few minutes from Hazleton.
Be sure to stop in, enjoy some refreshments, and browse the store to see what you can find.
