Toy shop moving into old Winslow Drug

A toy store is poised to replace Winslow Drug on Bainbridge Island’s main street.

Elisabeth Dahl, owner of Calico Toy Shoppe in Winslow Green, said she signed a lease agreement on the space at 290 Winslow Way E. She plans to move her business there this fall.

“We’re definitely excited about being in the middle of main street and the heart of town,” Dahl said.

Winslow Drug closed in May after 60 years in business. Safeway picked up its pharmacy accounts and hired its staff.

The spacious storefront left vacant by the Winslow Drug will give Calico room to grow and add new products, while exposing the business to more tourist traffic, Dahl said.

The shop will remain open in Winslow Green during the move, and possibly through the end of 2016.
