I am considering opening a new business in Brunswick, obviously in this day and age there are several uncertainties so I am seeking the help of the people of the community to see if my idea will be prosperous here in Brunswick. Please visit my site and leave your feedback, I created the site myself and this is just something you can do to help me out if you have a few minutes to provide me with your valuable feedback, I really appreciate it.

Sounds like a good fun store to own/operate but I have a few suggestions.
#1 The idea of "mom/dad go to the grocery store and drop the kids off here while you shop and we'll keep them busy" would most likely require your business to have a daycare license (an expensive endeavor), of course parents could choose to do such an action but I believe that you cannot advertise as such without creating a potential liability to your business.
#2 Your temporary site uses trademarked images owned by Time Warner/DC Publishing, Marvel Entertainment, Steve Jackson Games, and others you might wish to remove those in today's IP Anti-Infringement environment. Once you are an authorized distributor/reseller of those companies IP licenses are granted by the respective owners for promotional use (the companies usually provide/tell you which images you can & can't use). It isn't really a major problem now for your research site, but when you have a real webpage (not a google hosted one) it can be an issue.
None of the advice above should be construed as legal advice just modern common web-sense.

Oh and I forgot to mention this before but it was the first thing I noticed.

from your site
"this is in the beginning stages, the idea behind my store is currently being patented"

This isn't patentable, and in fact you could be in violation of a trademark currently associated with a respectable charity foundation site iaffeverydayheroes.com and you don't want your business to be accused of cybersquatting
"a domain name is identical or confusingly similar to a trademark or service mark in which the complainant has rights"
