People! I have terrible news! I know that you are all currently jumping around your rooms for joy at all of the other wonderful news that has come your way recently, but you may have missed this devastating announcement. Buttered Noodles is closing. First Kids City, which was our personal favorite toy store, went out of business, and today the owners of Buttered Noodles put this picture up on their Facebook site:
Ack! If they close, then the only toy store left will be Toys R Us! And don’t get me wrong, I loooooove Toys R Us. I have specifically chosen not to grow up in order to continue to be a Toys R Us kid, as instructed by the large giraffe. But Toys R Us is its own thing. They have a different set of products. Buttered Noodles (and Kids City before it closed) is the place to go for alternative play items. And now it may be no more. But there is a ray of hope. You could just buy it and keep it going. Yes, you.
It says right there at the bottom of that announcement that they would love to sell it to someone who would keep it going. It’s not going out of business for financial reasons; the owners are retiring! It is a profitable business that the community needs! If I had the money, I would buy it. Unfortunately, as you know, I am a musician. I don’t think I need to say any more than that in regards to my finances.
So I present you all with an opportunity. Somebody, for the love of all that is good in the world, please buy Buttered Noodles. It needs to happen, and nobody else is going to do it. It’s up to you! Or you and a small group of your friends that have always wanted to go into business together! Eh? Eh? Just do it! Think of the children!
Okay, thanks for agreeing. Let me know once you’ve got it up and running and I will promote the heck out of you here at Tenor Dad.com. Good luck, and we’ll see you at the store!
