Big Fun's West Side Store is Closing


Big Fun's Clifton Boulevard location will be closing sometime in the next few weeks. Here are the details from owner Steve Presser:
It is with sadness that we announce that Big Fun Cleveland (West Side) will be closing its doors. It's not easy in retail these days and we want to put our energy into making Big Fun Coventry even better.

So for the next few weeks or so....The entire Cleveland store will be 50% OFF. That means everything! Collectibles, Joke Items, Cleveland Memorabilia, Greeting Cards, Pride, Classic Candy, Cool Books, Christmas items etc...Nothing held back! Stock up now! Our sale starts tomorrow Friday January 30th. We open at 11:00am. We thank you for your nearly 6 years of patronage. Please remember to Shop Local and Support Brick and Mortar.

We will continue to Buy Old Toys at Clifton, so bring them in.
We need to keep Big Fun Coventry stocked with goodies.

Big Fun's legacy extends back some 25 years in this town, although the Clifton location had opened as recently as 2009. "In these tough times people need to laugh, and that's part of the fun of Big Fun," Presser told the Sun News at the time.
