About the owners of the Children's Store, Inc in Chapel Hill, NCThe Children’s Store and it’s history

In March of 1977, Jeanette proudly opened a small store in Chapel Hill filled to the brim with children’s clothes. The Children’s Store grew and when it was clear that Chapel Hill needed a toy store, Jeanette opened the Toy Corner. These two stores merged to form the store we have today featuring baby clothes and toys. In 1979, Christine brought her toy expertise and managerial skill to the enterprise. At the time, Becky, Jeanette’s daughter, was just a kid, but in 1999, she came on board adding her sense of design and love of children’s books to the mix. Over time the store has grown and evolved and is now a unique toy store that fulfills the needs of a town like Chapel Hill. It carries much more than your average toy store and caters to the diverse needs of our ever growing town. Jeanette, Christine, and Becky love running this business that has served two generations of customers. As Jeanette says, “What can be more fun than buying toys?”
