Learning Express Departs

Retirement closes the doors of a Westgate destination.

by Micheline Maynard

From the March, 2021 issue

Learning Express Toys & Gifts in Westgate closed on Jan. 26. Educational games creator Jan Barney Newman opened the store in 1997, and sold it to Gary and Molly Fitzpatrick in 2003. The closing announcement said that the owners are retiring. The Massachusetts-based company's website still lists more than 100 locations, but this was the only one in Michigan.
