Touring Lester’s Store on the Upper East Side

Recently I was invited to tour Lester’s on the Upper East Side here in NYC. While I've heard a lot about the store and received hot list about items being offered, I've personally haven't set foot in the store. But that all changed when I hopped the bus and headed across town.

What was my first impression? Honestly the store wasn't anything like I expected. From the items featured on the hot lists I received for the store I expected the store and the employees to snotty. But after meeting the super friendly staff and seeing kids and their parents walk in and out of the store, I realized how wrong was I was. Lester’s on the Upper East Side was very welcoming

Another section has items for infant and babies including clothing, books and toys. A little way back in the store is a shoe section large enough to kids to sit down and try on shoes.

If the kids don't can't sit still (while you try on shoes) then they can enjoy the novelty section. Tons of cool and fun items found in that area.
