Retailer of the Month Feature: The Doll Hospital & Toy Soldier Shop

The Doll Hospital & Toy Soldier Shop in Berkley, Michigan is truly one of a kind - starting with it's history and Grandma Kay Parish who opened a small doll repair shop in 1948.  Today, it now stands as a legend in the Southeast Michigan small business community and is a 30,000 square foot toy land operated by the third generation of family members.  
The Doll Hospital & Toy Soldier Shop offers customers a fantastic selection of items: arts & crafts, baby & toddler toys, dolls, games and themed play - they even have a Parent Teacher Resource Center.
Values are key to this store's success and the family takes great pride in what is sold in the store.  All toys in this story are made to the highest quality (many are classic and you could remember them from years past), safe and encourage one to use their imagination and creative play.  "Nothing involves a TV or video games," said President & Buyer, Stacey Zagrodzki. 
Saturday, November 9 is Neighborhood Toy Store Day and from 10am to 3pm make sure you come check out the family festivities in Berkley at The Doll Hospital & Toy Soldier Shop.  There will be crafts, entertainment and free gifts.  Also, 10 percent of the store's sales from that day will go to the Bottomless Toy Chest, a local charity that gives toys to little ones hospitalized for cancer.
