J & R Music World is downtown New York City’s destination for all things electronic. They are known far and wide for their great prices. I know because before I bought our video camera 2 1/2 years ago, I priced everything, everywhere, and found the best price here.
J & R Jr. was the natural progression for the owners of this store. When the owners became grandparents, their son saw a great opportunity. Downtown New York City has experienced huge growth population wise in the last decade and there is no kids destination store in the area. As part of the NY blog crew, today we got to check out the new store and what a great space it is!
When I needed a stroller, car seat, or bouncy chair for my new born I had several choices in my NYC neighborhood. The options downtown are far less. Now there is a huge space with all the hot brands at your service!
“But Mitch, I don’t live in NY!”
You don’t need to, to enjoy the great prices, their website has all your needs for the kids: J & R/Jr.
And here’s the other great thing for everyone visiting NYC – this a great space to visit with the kids when you visit downtown – everyone stops by this neighborhood when visiting NY. Your children will be in desperate need of a break and this is a spot to pick something up to keep them busy and not bored. Check the website to see if there are any great activities going on when you will be visiting, during the grand opening weekend Feb 11-12, there will be some great performers like Laurie Berkner and Dan Zane to entertain the kids!
Disclosure: I received a large gift bag and gift card for attending the event. This did not influence the blog post, I have been a fan of this store ever since my first visit to the downtown area of NYC over 25 years ago.
