Learning Express Toys Opens in Windermere/Ocoee, FL

Store Owners Make Commitment to Customer Service

Ocoee, FL – March 5, 2013 – Learning Express Toys, the nation’s largest educational toy retailer, is proud to announce the grand opening of a new franchise in Windermere/Ocoee, FL. Iliana and Vik Mavinkurve are looking forward to providing the community with both specialty toys and an exemplary customer service experience.

Learning Express Toys of Windermere/Ocoee will open its doors in the Plantation Grove Shopping Center on 2564 Maguire Road on Wednesday, March 20th and the grand opening festivities will continue through Sunday, March 24th. To kick off the Learning Express experience, the store is celebrating with an assortment of special offers over the weekend, including a 20% storewide discount, raffles throughout the day, and other giveaways.

Children can also look forward to special visits from a magician and everyone’s favorite red monster during grand opening weekend. Elmo will be paying a visit to Learning Express on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and will be in store until 6pm. Trixie Chick will also be onsite with balloon animals, face painting, and a magic show.

The Mavinkurves, like many Learning Express storeowners, are from diverse backgrounds. Vik is a former Wall Street investment banker and asset manager; Iliana ran a daycare center and was a substitute elementary school teacher. The husband-and-wife team plans to realize their dreams of opening their own business by bringing the Learning Express name to Windermere and Ocoee. “Our goal is to become a hub of fun for families in the surrounding areas,” the Mavinkurves commented. “We want to bring a smile to every child’s face in the area on a daily basis.”

Learning Express Toys of Windermere/Ocoee will set itself apart from the “big-box” toy stores in every possible way. In addition to unique toys, gifts, and exclusive products — all of which inspire imagination, creativity, and intellectual and physical development — Learning Express Toys will offer customized services such as free gift wrapping, complimentary personalization of select items, a “birthday box” registry, and even a curb-side gift pick-up for those extra busy days.

The Mavinkurves are especially eager to support the local community. “We are really looking forward to supporting local businesses and hiring as many local people as possible,” they commented. “Windermere/Ocoee is a close knit, family oriented community. Customers here are loyal to small, local businesses — we want to reciprocate that loyalty.”
