It’s been 25 years since the Miller family purchased a single toy store and began a growth trajectory that has expanded Geppetto’s into the largest independent toy retailer in the country with nine locations throughout San Diego County. To celebrate, Geppetto’s is turning the tables on a traditional birthday party by giving out gifts and goodies instead of receiving them. On Saturday, September 16, Geppetto’s will host a thank you party at all locations from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. featuring free food, entertainment, activities and crafts, party decorations and a free signature Geppetto’s drawstring backpack filled with over $30 worth of toys from some of the store’s most popular brands (while supplies last).
An active part of the San Diego community, Geppetto’s believes in helping those that help children in need. Also part of the anniversary celebration is a first ever “Golden Ticket” contest featuring a once in a lifetime trip to Toy Fair in New York for a lucky child under 16 (plus adult). Beginning September 1, Geppetto’s will be selling commemorative chocolate bars for $2 with 100% of profits benefitting Rady Children’s Hospital – San Diego. Hidden in one of these chocolate bars somewhere in San Diego County will be the winning Golden Ticket, entitling the winner to an amazing adventure at the 2018 Toy Fair in New York February 16 -18.
