9/10/15 Football season has begun. As we were putting our son's games into the calendar, we realized that we will barely be able to watch any of his games. We've been preparing to close at the end of the year and have decided to stop offering open after September 12th. We are sorry for an inconvenience. We are grateful for these past 3 years. We do realize that a few of you might have gift cards. We are planning to sell all of our LEGO bulk (new and old), our sets, K'NEX, DUPLO, preschool sets, and furniture in December. The date for this sale has not be set, but we will be giving plenty of notice. All of our birthday party slots are booked for the remainder of the year. Thank you! 7/31/15 We are officially announcing that Build It will close at the end of this year. Balancing our personal careers and the expanding demands of our family while running a business has become increasingly difficult. We have enjoyed this amazing adventure, but have decided that we cannot buy back time with our family. We will continue to offer Saturday Open Play, Saturday parties and our FLL/Jr. FLL classes, but will no longer offer Monday Open Play or Friday night parties. We are planning to sell our LEGO bricks, sets, materials and furniture later this year. We will continue to honor gift cards through the end of the year.
Build It has been a great experience that exceeded our expectations. We want to thank you all for your support, encouragement and business over the past few years.
Thanks,The Boden Family
Two years ago, we began this adventure we called “Build It”. We were inspired by our son and his love for LEGO. We wanted to give him, and others like him, a place that promotes creativity while providing academic challenges. We found so much more than we ever thought possible.
The main focus of Build It is STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) along with 21st Century Skills (Creativity, Critical Thinking, Collaboration and Communication). Our business is an evolving place as we practice the true art of entrepreneurship. We continue to make changes in an effort to improve. This past year we added a zip line and tree fort. We have been stretched in character, endurance, time and finances. The challenges have given us opportunities for growth.
Recently, Bill decided to return to the corporate world and was blessed with an amazing job opportunity. This will bring a few changes to Build It as we will now try to juggle our own personal dream jobs with our dream company.
We will no longer offer Open Play on Wednesdays or Fridays and we are moving our homeschool classes to Mondays.
We are truly grateful for the amazing support we have received from the community. Your business and words of encouragement have meant more to us than you will ever realize. Our hours may be fewer, but our heart and love for this company continue. We will put our passion and creativity into making 2015 a great year.
Thanks,The Boden Family
