The Samko and Miko Toy Warehouse Sale
With the fall of Toys R Us in the US, it may seem like toys aren’t important anymore. But that’s just not the case. The big retailer’s problem wasn’t a lack of interest from children and parents, as evidenced in this news article about an 8-year-old boy who sent $3 of his own money to help save the failing toy store chain.
In reality, toys are just as important as ever for children’s growth and development. In fact, they may be even more important now that so many children spend their days in front of screens instead of interacting in the world. Toys are a way to keep their interest held without the hours of mind numbing screen time.
Fortunately for parents, the Samko and Miko Toy Warehouse isn’t going anywhere. This year is our 45th anniversary of our famous warehouse sales.
From our pioneering days in downtown Toronto on Queen and Dufferin we have been — and remain — committed to staying true to our original mission. That mission is providing brand name toys and books at the lowest prices in Canada.
Today we have two locations in the Greater Toronto Area with over 30,000 square feet of merchandise, as well as our large scale pop-up sales in Ottawa, London, and Hamilton.
Why visit our stores? Find out by reading on.
Although our online store is quick and convenient, there is value in visiting our brick and mortar stores.
Among those reasons are an even bigger selection. Our stores actually have thousands of more products to choose from with popular brands like:
- Fisher Price
- Mega Bloks
- Hot Wheels
And we carry licenced products that children love, including:
Our book selection is even more impressive, with literally thousands of every type of children’s book imaginable. We even have books featuring the popular, licensed characters listed above.
In order to keep our prices low, our physical locations are only open during our special sales periods. And our warehouse sales are typically where you can find even better prices. From clearance priced toys to low quantity specialty items we receive from our suppliers, there are always gems to be found.
Whenever we get really exciting deals, we feature these “Door Crashers” on our flyer. Door Crashers are items that are priced to move and sell quick like:
- Rawlings Leather Baseball Gloves: $59.99 Reg vs $22.50
- Crayola Cling Creator:$ 27.99 Reg vs $10.00
- Power Wheels Minnie Quad: $129.99 vs $55
- Original Smartrike -4 in 1 Baby Trike: $129.00 Reg vs $49.99
Our products are being discounted weekly with the goal to move out merchandise and make room for new ones. Our stores receive new products every week so if you like getting a bargain, it’s worth visiting a few times a month!
We always hear comments from our customers like: “I can’t believe my bill was only …..!”
This year we’re doing something a little different that we are excited about. We are going to carry a great line of Halloween costumes that we will feature in our next blog! So keep following the news here to be among the first to see the Halloween selection.
Our warehouse sale gets busier and busier towards the holidays, but people love coming here to shop. The parents are as excited as the kids, especially when they see how low our prices are.
What to know about our Warehouse Sales
When you visit our store, grab a red bag and start your shopping adventure! As your bags fill up you can leave them in our holding area. Just write your name on the labels we provide, stick them on your bags, and continue shopping. It’s easy, and you don’t have to lug everything around!
If you’d like, you can bring in your own small cart, stroller, or wagon. We have a policy of not providing carts, which may sound a little different, but here’s why we do it. Our warehouse gets very busy during sales, and with the amount of shoppers, children, and employees around, carts pose a danger to our customers.
Don’t worry about getting your purchases back to your car, though. During checkout we have designated staff that can help you carry out your purchases. We understand that many customers have too many bags to carry on their own, and we want to make your shopping trip as easy and convenient as possible.
Be sure to sign up for our email list as we constantly are giving away prizes to some of our lucky customers.
