Learning Shop to close Feb. 17
The Learning Shop, 714 S. Gammon Road, Madison’s last independent toy store, will close by Feb. 17, according to a Wisconsin State Journal report.
The owners have five other locations that will not close — in Appleton, Brookfield, Greendale, Mequon, and Gurnee, Illinois. Gift cards can be redeemed in Madison until the store closes, or at the other locations.
The Learning Center has been in Madison for 25 years. The news follows the demise of other Madison toy stores including Capitol Kids, Learning Express, and the most recent, Playthings, at Hilldale Shopping Center, which may close by the end of this month.
