Children’s Palace, 1992

Posted on August 17, 2017 | in Uncategorized | by

Children’s Palace, one of Lexington’s largest toy retailers, on the day it closed, Aug. 17, 1992. The 36,000-square-foot store in Regency Centre off Nicholasville Road was forced to close after a bankruptcy filing and a failed merger. As a result, Toys R Us in South Park Shopping Center became the only Lexington toy retailer comparable in size and selection. The retail space sat vacant for a year until Allied Sporting Goods and T.J. Maxx moved in. Today, T.J. Maxx and a Michaels craft store occupy the spot. Photo by David Perry | Staff
