Bennett’s Toys & Educational Materials, located in the Magnolia Shopping Center, has announced in a Facebook post earlier this week that it is closing its doors and everything must go.
Kurt & Lisa Richter purchased the business at the end of September 2017 from Vernon Moore, who owned the store for 35 years. Moore purchased the business from the original owner Sally Bennett about 1982.
Bennett’s has been a part of the community since 1969.
[Update: Goleta Voice reached out to Bennett’s and was told that while the lease is up in December, the actual closing is determined when all inventory is gone.]
