Have you heard the latest news? There’s a new children’s shop opening in town! We have high hopes for getting our holiday shopping done early this year, which is why you’ll find us at Ollie’s Other Place next Saturday* – after a breakfast at Middlebury Bagel & Deli. Want to know more about this new shop? Check out their press release:
Becky Dayton and Jenny Lyons of the Vermont Book Shop announce the opening of a new children’s store in Middlebury. The store, Ollie’s Other Place, will feature a core selection of children’s books plus an assortment of creative and educational gifts, games, and toys for babies and children. The business is in the space previously occupied by Yak Adventures and EveryWear, next to Middlebury Bagel & Deli, across the street from the Shaw’s shopping plaza. Ollie’s Other Place will carry quality toy brands such as HABA, Folkmanis, tegu, Pal Socks and more. “We felt Middlebury could use a really great place to shop for unique baby gifts and birthday presents, and cool stuff for kids’ rooms.” While there will be a select offering of classic and gift children’s books at Ollie’s, The Vermont Book Shop will maintain and expand its children and young adult book sections. Ollie’s Other Place will host a grand opening on Saturday, November 28, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.. Hours are Wednesday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m, Saturday & Sunday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. 13 Washington St.; 3825885; olliesotherplace.com.
*we had the wrong date on this the first time it was released, sorry for any confusion.
