fantasyland store: Financial problems at the parent company and rising rents closed that store in 2015, but FAO is now pulling back from the worst financial precipice since it was founded in 1862, according to Vancouver Courier. In recent weeks at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, workers drilled, hammered and sawed 24 hours a day to get the new store ready. The fantasyland store it opened on Fifth Avenue in 1986 was a tourist attraction, replete with its own theme song, doormen who looked like palace guards and a musical clock tower. Employees filled shelves with hundreds of plush animals that have long defined the brand bears, bunnies, elephants, chicks and more. And on the second level of the 20,000-square-foot space is a giant piano keyboard mat like the one on which Tom Hanks danced to Heart and Soul in the 1988 film Big. The big entrance clock tower has returned. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
