Henry Bear’s Park For Sale

Want to own three local toy stores?

Henry Bear’s Park, with locations in Arlington, Cambridge and Brookline, is for sale.

Founder Salley Lesser is planning to retire after 37 years.

“It’s the right time,” she said in a statement. “Business is very good, and there are many exciting possibilities for growth. Those opportunities are best tackled by someone with a long future ahead of them. I’m hoping to work with new owners through the business transition, as I move towards my retirement.”

Paul Siegenthaler, of Needham-based Ridge Hill Partners Inc., is managing the sale and has written a blog post with more information.

The store is named after David McPhail's children's book, "Henry Bear's Park."
