Today we interview Lynne Milot, founder of Grandrabbit’s Toy Shoppe, a toy store located in Boulder, Colorado.
The idea was hatched in 1976, when Lynne was a scholarship director at a Montessori school. While helping multiple Moms attain scholarships for their children, she noticed their need for employment that respected their primary role of being a mother.
With that in mind, Lynne opened the toy store as a place where she could employ those Moms. The store began with the philosophy of helping the community and has grown into the three stores Lynne owns today.
