What Should Go in Learning Express?

The Westwood branch of the educational toy store closed this year.

Learning Express, the Westwood branch of the toy store chain, closed this year.

The store sold educational toys, from baby age and older.

The site is located on Center Avenue in Westwood's Central Business District and is zoned for many uses. Of course, it could still be a toy store — Five Corner Convenience recently reopened nearby with new owners after it closed earlier this year. Similarly, the former News: What When Wear .

Many new businesses have recently opened in Westwood, including Glow, Victoria Rose Salon and Olive Branch & Grape Vine.

Another Learning Express! We NEED a store like that in town! No one REALLY wants to go on the highway to by toys for kids.And their choices were wonderful! Please....another of the same!

Better ask the owner of the Westwood Theater what he thinks before he shuts down the plans of another small business owner! He is the mayor, after all, isn't he? No? Too bad about the Learning Express, it's a great store that has unique and educational toys.

I was so disappointed to see that it had closed, as well as surprised, being that it always seemed busy. It was so convenient when you were in need of a gift for a child, and they always stocked unique and educational toys that you don't always find at the larger toy stores. I too hope they fill the space with a similar store.
