(KTVI)-Two popular St. Louis area toy stores are closing. According to We Are Happy Up Inc., owners of Once Upon a Toy, located in Edwardsville, IL, and LagoonaMagoo in Clayton, MO, they are being forced to closed due to a small business loan being called by the bank.  That means the bank won’t extend the loan.

Once Upon a Toy and LagoonaMagoo are closing for inventory starting on Sunday, March 10, through Wednesday, March 13.  They don’t know when or if they will be able to reopen.

They are encouraging customers to shop Saturday, especially if they have gift certificates.

A “Save Once Upon A Toy” Facebook page has been started by fans of the store.
