Snow Hill Welcomes New Business To Long Dormant Building

SNOW HILL – Shoppers can step back in time as they walk through the doors of Snow Hill’s newest business.

After months of renovations, on Friday Toy Town Antiques opened in the town’s long vacant opera house. The store, formerly located in Berlin, attracts antique collectors from all over the country.

“We are so happy,” Snow Hill Mayor Charlie Dorman said. “This building has been vacant 16 years. To see a proven business come out of Berlin to come to Snow Hill, it’s amazing. It’ll be one of our main attractions.”

Richard Seaton, proprietor of Toy Town, said he made the decision to move his shop to Snow Hill last year, knowing that his lease in Berlin was expiring and that Snow Hill was a more affordable alternative. Because Toy Town has a strong base of regular customers, he wasn’t too worried about losing the foot traffic of Berlin.

I hope that move improves their customer service. Staff members are very unfriendly and we stopped going to the Berlin location because of it.

This fellow is going to feel like the Maytag Repairman, the only people wandering the streets of Snow Hill are the druggies waiting for their court appearance at the local court house. I visited his store twice very high prices and he was not friendly at all.
