Awesome Toy & Game Arrivals & More News!

There’s been lots of things happening here at WFS since our last post! As you’ve probably noticed, our blog has a new look, thanks to the multi-talented Kate McKinney, who graciously agreed to help us out. She’ll also be helping us create our new website, which will be debuting soon…..we’re very excited about this new facet of our business! Please stay tuned in for more information about our new website.
We’re also happy to announce that we’ve gotten in some fabulous new toys, games and books for children, just in time for those seemingly never-ending doldrums of summer. They’re guaranteed to cure boredom and I know you’ll be happy to hear that! Also come in and see the new stuffed animals freshly arrived from toymakers Melissa & Doug…..cute, cuddly and best of all, no mess….what’s not to love? I’m sure you’ll want to adopt one for your child.

Every one home from school and no one knows whose job is whose? Kids fighting over who has to clean the kitchen, make the bed and clean the bathroom? Or worse, are you dreading the return of the school year because you have to nag your child to do homework & projects? No worries, WFS has you covered. Come in and check out our very cool (and useful!) family helpers – household jobs & responsibilities charts, potty and homework charts to encourage your child in a positive way to learn those important rules and duties at home and school.
Don’t neglect extracurricular learning activities while your child is on summer vacation! We have a wide selection of flash cards and fun-oriented workbooks in all major subjects…..math, English, vocabulary, science and some geography. Most of these workbooks and flashcards are available in English/Spanish editions.

Speaking of summer doldrums, keep checking our blog for news of our summer clearance sale, to be held sometime in August. We need to make room for all our back-to-school merchandise, so do check back for a firm date on this major blow-out sale!

Lastly, don’t forget to sign our guest book while you’re in the store – or leave a comment here – you could win a lunch with Michelle and Lori on July 25th! We’ll be picking six (6) winning entries on July 21st , and we’ll notify you by email (or phone, if we must). Let us take you to a nice restraunt, where we can sit down, have an enjoyable meal and talk about the changes being made at the store. I’m truly interested in getting to know you and how you’d like to see us develop….we want to be the place you like to shop at. It would also allow me an opportunity to explain the reasons why we’ve made the changes you see at Webster’s and how it will ultimately benefit the community. I can tell you our plans of supporting our local public schools and how we’re planning to make back-to-school shopping easier & more fun than ever. If you’re worried about giving us your email address, please don’t worry. We promise not to ever spam you. By having your email address, we’ll be able to send you periodic coupons and notifications of special events & specials. Periodic doesn’t mean daily email from us… me, we’ll be doing well if we can get one a month out. We also promise not to sell or give away your information to anyone – ever.
Come by soon….we’re waiting for you!
