Kids Play at Directbuyâ?¦directbuy Offers â??playâ? Areas for Parents and Children
The six DirectBuy franchises serving the greater Washington DC/Baltimore areaâDirectBuy of Columbia, DirectBuy of Metro Washington NW (Gaithersburg), DirectBuy of Baltimore North (Hunt Valley), and DirectBuy of Southern Maryland (Lanham), Maryland; DirectBuy of Chantilly and DirectBuy of Woodbridge, Virginiaâhave developed a âKids Zoneâ area in their respective clubs so parents can focus on the task at hand and kids can enjoy the DirectBuy experience, too.
Though not a supervised area, the Kids Zone features a number of things to keep school-age children occupied and entertained: books, puzzles and games. The Kids Zone also includes a flat screen television so children of members can watch movies or play video games.
âLetâs face it, most kids would rather go to the dentist than watch their parents shop for their next home improvement project. By the same token, itâs difficult for members with children to get the most out of the experience and do the research they need to do if theyâre concerned about the kids getting fidgety. The Kids Zone gives children of DirectBuy members a place to play games, watch TV or even make new friends with other membersâ kids while the grown-ups have their âfunâ,â said Lee Brown, owner of DirectBuy of Chantilly.
Creating fun things to do for children is nothing new for DirectBuy. DirectBuy franchises across North America regularly donate equipment to youth organizations like the Boys & Girls Clubs, YMCAs and childrenâs hospitals.
âBecause we are entrenched in the local community, we have an even greater incentive to make this a one-of-a-kind, unique shopping experience because many of the members are our friends, neighbors, even relatives,â said Brown. âThe Kids Zone and donations to youth groups are just an extension of that philosophy.â
