Snapdoodle Toys back open with safety measures and social distancing

Online shopping is still available, too.

Snapdoodle Toys, the popular local toy seller, has reopened its four stores — in Seattle, Redmond, Kenmore and Issaquah — for in-person shopping after a long closure amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Hours at all stores at 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Saturday; and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday.

Masks are required of all shoppers (cute kids masks also are for sale!), hand sanitizer will be provided and capacity in the stores will be limited.

During the closure, owners Rob and Cherry Pickering pivoted to an online business with curbside pickup and shipping, options that are still available.
