Saipan Toys LLC is vacating its showroom in Gualo Rai and moving all its inventory to As Teo. Before completing the move, though, the shop will be holding a relocation sale.
“Deals are good through Saturday until items are loaded on truck for transport. Please stop by Saipan Toys LLC and if you see an item you like call me directly to discuss price,” said owner Scott Malin in a social media post.
In an interview with Saipan Tribune, Malin said he is closing Saipan Toys LLC’s showroom as a way of reducing overhead costs to pass savings along to customers.
Items on sale include their popular dirt bikes, quad-bikes, and TVs. “COVID has slowed everything down,” he said when asked why Saipan Toys LLC is closing shop at the intersection of Middle Road and Gualo Rai Road.
When Malin opened Saipan Toys LLC last year he said he did so simply because he’s a connoisseur of “big boys toys.” But even at that time, he was aware of the inherent risks of opening a new business in the time of the COVID-19 pandemic. “It’s definitely not easy, but it should be good when things pick back up,” he said then.
Despite the closure, Malin assures his customers Saipan Toys LLC will continue to do business but by appointment only. It also continues to do financing for small items ($10,000 or less) through Express Financial.
To set up an appointment and buy new smart TVs or kick the tires on quad-bikes and dirt bikes, call Malin at 788-3381.
