OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The kiddos are at home a lot right now, so if you're looking for a place to get them some toys, games or activities to keep their brains active during this time, Learning Express Toys inside Regency Mall is open.
Cheryl Olson has worked at Learning Express Toys inside Regency Mall for years. The store opened 22 years ago.
"We are probably one of the last true toy stores open, and what we do is we have very personal customer service," Olson said.
Despite the COVID-19 outbreak, the store is open as usual, with employees wiping down every surface even more and focusing on fulfilling phone and online orders.
"You can tell us girl, boy, what they're interested in, and we can sell you all kinds of toys that we know that child would really enjoy," Olson said. "We are also doing curbside delivery; you can call the store, and we can take your order over the phone, and pay for it with your credit card and then we can just run it to you outside."
You can still stop in to shop, but the store is limiting the amount of people who enter at once. You can find the obvious toys, but it also has workbooks, activity books, flash cards, science games and outdoor activities to keep the learning going on at home.
The store is also carrying what some consider gold right now...hand sanitizer. Customers are offered a small pocket size for one $1.99 and a larger 8oz bottle for $5.99. Learning Express Toys just received a large shipment for hand sanitizer and are expecting more so they don't plan on running out for a while.
"A lot of people have come in, and they're in home healthcare, they're plumbers, they're electricians - you name it - daycare people, everyone has come in, and it's nice that we have these for the public right now."
For curbside service just park on the east side of Regency Mall.
