Tom Thumb To Leave HP Village

Tom Thumb Leaving HP Village

News broke Friday that Tom Thumb will be leaving its Highland Park Village location in the next 12 months. This move has been rumored for a while now, but, until Friday, there had been no official statement made.


With no room for expansion at this location, it’s not surprising that the store will be closing its doors. At just 18,500 square feet, this store is much smaller than the average store size of 46,000 square feet.


We’ve also we’ve learned that Tom Thumb‘s parent company, Safeway, which is based in California, is considering selling the entire company. But, never fear, President Paul McTavish said that Tom Thumb will look for a larger location that will still cater to the Highland Park area and its customers.

Shop & Give to a Great Cause

Labor of Love


Earlier this week we received an email from The Family Place notifying us of a great event at LAFCO in Highland Park Village that will benefit Labor of Love. Isn’t is always great news when you can get something you need and donate to a good cause at the same time?


We missed the first leg of the event that was held Monday, Feb. 10, but we wanted to give you the heads up that 15% of all house & home products sales from LAFCO will go to Labor of Love when you shop this Sunday, Feb. 16. AND, while you’re there, you can also enter to win a $500 Highland Park Village gift card that includes a 2-hour session with Highland Park Village’s personal shopper!


This would be a great opportunity to get a belated Valentine’s gift, or to stock up on some great items for future birthdays!
