PostSubject: Zoos and brick and mortar stores -what they carry   Wed Feb 24, 2016 7:52 pm

I know there's a dedicated topic for the online stores, but I thought it would be interesting to see what stores carry what where and prices if people remember. :)


USA- zoos

Chicago, IL
Brookfield zoo [sales tax= 10%]
-- Safari Ltd.
----> entrance store seem to carry several of the good luck minis: panther, koalas, okapi, elephant, meerkat, clownfish, tiger, blue butterfly (I think there were a couple others, but can't remember)@ us$0.70+tax[10%] each
---->All year round stores seem to carry some of the regular Safari Ltd, but I didn't check prices or look at them more than in passing.
-- I believe also a variety of adventure planet and wild republic sets. Prices vary.


South Bend, IN
Potawatomi Zoo [sales tax =? 7.5% ?]
--Safari Ltd
--> small selection of regular sized including some  lizards, dragons, and large cats - okapis...
-small selection of wild republic sets

Interesting to see where the various brands have succeeded to get their products in Very Happy

I can only tell what I remember from this area in Denmark (Djursland) :

It seems that Wild Republic has been able to drop all the most horrible sets at blown-up prices around here ! Suspect

Scandinavian Dyrepark :
Uhh, I'll have to go there soonagain. It is a couple of years ago.
By then they mainly had Fluffy Wild Republic animals, but I was fortunate to find a basket of old Safari models, some retired, and at very old prices too Very Happy

Kattegatcenteret ( Last spring):
Only the cheapest horrors from Wild Republic at very high prices tongue

Reepark ( Last summer) :
Same Rolling Eyes But also some very nice, and made models.

Randers Regnskov ( App a year ago):
Same, but a shelf with old Safari models at reasonable prices Very Happy

Laura, my husband is from Niles. He remembers Potawatomi Zoo! (I've never been to the Midwest)

Lion Country Safari in West Palm Beach/Loxahatchee FL had (as of late May 2017) a fair selection of Safari regular size and a few large (Incredible Creatures), and I think I remember a spindle with Good Luck Minis. They also had a bunch of Wild Republic playsets and toobs, and a few AAA large lionesses with cubs.

Imagination Station, a store in Key West FL, had lots of Safari and Schleich, and a handful of off brand figures.

The Dinosaur Store in Cocoa Beach FL has Safari, some Papo, I think I remember some Schleich, and a little no name stuff. It was all dinosaurs/some prehistoric except for a little fantasy (dragons).

Horstmeyers in Sanford Fl has combined with Saddler, the local tack shop. I haven't been in since the joining, but Saddler carried Breyers and some Peter Stones. Most tack shops are probably similar.
