Age of Reason appears closed.
The popular store — a longtime destination for the kinds of kids’ items you will not find at Toys R Us — has a sale sign in front. But the interior is cleared out, and no one answered the phone when I called a few minutes ago.
They’ve struggled for a while. Online competition has been hard. The location — on the Post Road/Riverside Avenue “worst intersection in Connecticut” — has not helped.
But the small staff was unfailingly kind.
And very, very knowledgeable.
These days, those qualities are not high on enough shoppers’ lists.
