After the last week of May 2013, you won’t be able to find Toy Joy on Guadalupe anymore.
Rumors have been circling for the past few months, but the iconic local toy store just officially announced a move to downtown Austin.
Toy Joy has called 2900 Guadalupe St. its home for over a decade, just north of The University of Texas campus.
The reason for the move? Ownership shares in an official press release, “to better serve our customers, it is time to move on.”
You’ll be able to find the new location at 403 2nd Street, a block west of Austin City Hall. Fans of “the weirdest independently owned toy store in Austin” can celebrate its grand opening on June 1, 2013.
“In addition to making Toy Joy more accessible to more Austinites, this location also provides more parking for customers. Toy Joy customers will be able to park for 2 hours at three convenient parking garages. We’re very excited about this opportunity to play a part in the revitalization and development of Austin’s downtown!”
