The Selectmen approved a Common Victualer’s License on August 8, 2016 for the new Learning Express Play located at The Bedford Marketplace at 168 The Great Road.
Most Learning Express stores operate as educational toy and bookstores for children, ranging in size from 1,200 to 4,000 square feet. The Bedford store, at 7500 square feet, will offer a more interactive experience with play and educational encounters for children ages six months to eight years old.
The larger Bedford space, the first of its kind, will also offer a snack café with ten seats featuring pre-packaged snacks, as well as fresh baked goods from Prince Street Café and Bakery, located nearby on The Great Road.
Learning Express Director Sonya Kalajian told the Selectmen there will be a “Grand Opening” on Friday, September 23.
