The Realm of Toys

Williams Lake, BC Premier's People's Choice:
Top 10 Semi-Finalist
Employees: 3 In Business Since: 2013

The Realm of Toys is a motivated and innovative retail store that is so much more. Not only have they created an exceptional space to escape into a thrilling independent toy store experience, but they go out of their way to contribute to a vibrant sense of community. The owner volunteers for multiple local non-profits and consistently supports the community through donations.

Perhaps their largest contribution to the greater community is their innovation with community events. They organize and facilitate multiple events every year that are unique and encourage community participation by other small businesses, including their direct competitors. Their events are inclusive for all children to be able to participate in. Just one example (of many) is their Trick ‘R Treat Downtown event where children can trick or treat at local businesses. This event encourages business downtown while providing a family-friendly community activity. Small business, big heart!
