San Francisco lacking in toy stores

“When you go to a birthday party, the parents are all asking: What the heck? Where are all the toy stores?”

This is the city of lost toy stores. San Franciscans searching for the perfect toy gift this holiday season have had the added hurdle of finding a place to buy it. via Monterey County Herald

Simple demographics: take a large urban city with a high concentration of Out-of-Towners, Yuppies, DINKS, and Gay population, and you have a lot less children, per capita, as opposed to other urban markets.The toy stores can be easily found in suburbia,and family-oriented neighborhood locations and malls...

Most of the toy stores are in found suburbia, like ToysRus. Well there some toys in all the Wallgreens and Rite Aids in the city, but it will not help at all if someone is looking for something in particular like Star War legos, G.I. Joe Action figures, Ninja Turtle action figures, Spiderman walkie talkies, wooden rocking horse, Leap Frog stuff and Thomas and Friends to name some. The nearest ToysRus is at Bridge Point in San Mateo, which use to be Fashion Island. The nearest Target stores in Colma, Serramonte Center in Daly City and at the Tanforan mall in San Bruno. The nearest KB Toys is at the Great Mall of the Bay Area. A lote of the stuff that Jose said are also very true about why there are no toy stores in San Franciso at all.

you simply dont have a clue what you are talking about. i would rather live here than with a stock of corn. thats why we have bridges to get to your toy stores. you have obviously never been here before. so what if we have a big gay population so does every other city in america. i dont consider it a problem at all.
