Last week I was invited to check out a new store in the area called Marbles: The Brain Store. Marbles: The Brain Store has been around since 2008 and they first got their start selling their products out of a kiosk. The folk at The Brain Store like to give their customers an experience and the ability to actually play with the products a little bit, so they quickly expanded to several stores in the Chicago area. Now there are stores in New Jersey, Maryland, Minnesota and now Massachusetts!
I went to the store located in the Northshore Mall in Peabody, but they also opened up stores in Natick and Braintree. As soon as I walked in, I was greeted by Lindsay Gaskins, President and CEO of Marbles: The Brain Store. I got a chance to speak with her a little bit and she explained how their products can help boost creativity, improve focus and just plain excersise your brain.
I walked around the store and was really impressed with what I saw.
I really liked that they had all their games open, so that you can really get a sense of what you’re buying. It’s such a bummer to buy something, get it home and not be happy. Marbles: The Brain Store elimates that headache completely by giving their customers the chance to check out what they’re buying.
I even had a chance to meet Albert, their mascot, who was at the store in celebration of their grand opening weekend:
Marbles: The Brain Store has books, toys, puzzles and games that are appropriate for all age levels - from young children well into maturity. If you have any questions while you’re in the store, just ask one of their “brain coaches” and they’ll be able to help you. I spoke with three different brain coaches during my visit and they were all highly familiar with all the products and were truly helpful.
I purchased a few things for my children while I was there and can’t wait to get my husband back there to check it out.
