Downtown Alameda Celebrates New and Old
First of all, congratulations to Helen Dean and Toy Safari for celebrating the toy store’s 25th anniversary this month. Toy Safari is a longtime retailer in Downtown Alameda and has grown to offer a HUGE array of new, used, vintage, and collectible toys. Some even say Toy Safari is home to the greatest toys on Earth. Be sure to stop and take a look inside the next time you’re taking a stroll along Park Street.
This month also marks a change for a longtime business as it steps back to let a new business shine in the storefront. When you walk by the street corner at 1229 Park Street, you’ll notice that the window is no longer full of old televisions waiting to be repaired. Elite Electronics has moved to the rear of the shop and allowed the front to be transformed into a premier nail salon. Nailbar officially opened its doors on August 5. Swing by and take a look at the swanky new interior!
Another new happening on the street… more banners have been installed on street poles throughout the district, including Lincoln Ave and Santa Clara Ave.
