A Westchester business is celebrating hitting the half-century mark today.
Miller's Toys in Mamaroneck has been in business for at least 50 years.
Over the past 20 years, Brooke Andrews and her husband Taka have overseen the family business. During their tenure, they managed to outlive the well-known toy giant Toys R' Us.
Now, their success is being recognized. State Sen. Shelley Mayer (D) announced its addition to the State Historic Business Preservation Registry.
The registry was created in 2020 and is meant to promote businesses in operation for at least 50 years.
Taka Andrews called the honor "incredibly humbling” and said “this business is bigger than us.”
"Because of our customers, we've been able to be creative and create a place people enjoy,” said Brooke Andrews.
Miller’s Toys became more than just a store over the years. Residents view it as a place where memories are made.
"My first big-boy bicycle came from right in the back of the store,” said John Pritts, co-president of the Mamaroneck Historical Society.
“Miller's has always been here, and I know it always will be,” said Sunny Goldberg, board chair of LMC Media.
