Unique Business for Kids Just Announced It is Closing in Rochester, Minnesota

It's been a bit since I met Pav, the owner of Nana Gogo Toybrary.  I believe I was at a women's networking in town and she was just getting ready to open her new business that would give families a place to borrow toys and as well as exchange them.  It was set up for kids that were 6 months old until 6 years old and offered a responsible way to play that also promoted zero waste.

Unfortunately, it was just announced, that this toy library located at 2300 Superior Drive NW in Rochester, Minnesota was closing on November 22nd.

It is with a very heavy, reluctant heart that I announce our closing on November 22nd, 2023.

 

Thank you so much for your support! You’ve given us amazing memories in these 15 short months since the Toybrary opened. I’ll deeply cherish every visit, every laugh, every conversation, and each new friendship that we’ve witnessed bloom at the Toybrary!

 

Due to heavy financial losses and other unforeseen circumstances, we have made the decision to close. This is the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make. I hope this is not Goodbye, but simply So long.
