BG LEADERS LOOK AT BELLEFONTAINE’S “HUSTLE-HARD” APPROACH USED TO RESCUE THAT DOWNTOWN
Seventy-five miles due south of Bowling Green sits a town that transformed shuttered businesses into a vibrant downtown.
The Fun Company
In 1983, Bev Goff had a vision to serve the teachers and parents of Logan County when she created the one-of-a-kind business called the Education Station. As she decided to retire in 2018, Mandy and Brian Osterfeld purchased the business. With a vision to still serve educators and parents and carry-on Bev's legacy, they ultimately transformed it into The Fun Company.
As parents themselves and business owners already, Mandy & Brian knew they also wanted to update the business by adding an expanded toy selection with the latest and greatest available on the market. Mandy states that one of their "favorite family pastimes was visiting super cool independent toy stores across the country, and we thought - why not build one right here in Bellefontaine!" Bellefontaine was the location of choice because after buying Tanger's Furniture 5 years ago, the Osterfeld family fell in love with Logan County and all that this community has to offer a young family. The Fun Company specializes in toys, games, books, puzzles, crafts, STEM, learning aids and teacher supplies. Have you seen their pop it and Lego collections!? They also host birthday parties and workshops on a regular basis. Did you know - The Fun Company offers layaway for Christmas, as well as a wish list program for Christmas and birthdays that gives you 10% off anything in the store! Your child can also receive a gift in the mail on their birthday! All for FREE! It is a no brainer that The Fun Company is the perfect addition to all that Logan County has to offer families.
