Collingswood business breathes new life into a 111 year old building and kicks off holiday activities at a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony with Mayor Jim Maley and Commissioners Joan Leonard and Mike Hall on December 11, 2015.

COLLINGSWOOD, NJ – On December 11, 2015 Collingwood’s premier brain boosting game and toy store, ExtraordinaryED, will officially host a Grand Opening at their new location 808 Haddon Avenue featuring a ribbon cutting ceremony with Mayor Jim Maley and Commissioners Joan Leonard and Mike Hall at 4:30pm.

For the last year, ExtraordinaryED has collaborated with local contractors and businesses to renovate the 111 year old historic building at 808, which prior to the purchase in 2014 was empty for 10 years. On December 11, the store will welcome the public to celebrate an exciting milestone for Collingswood, both in the addition of a successful business along the famous Haddon Ave. and the reopening of a beautiful historic building.

“ExtraordinaryED is thrilled to be a part of the Collingswood community, and our new space is such a fantastic opportunity for us to continue to give back,” says Rusty McCarty, founder and CEO of CustomED, “With our new community classroom, game nights, classes and products, we look forward to fulfilling our mission to provide exciting educational experiences to help our town learn, play and grow!”
