Grosse Pointe Park has a new business coming to town in The Robot Garage
The location will be the third for the four-year-old, Birmingham-based business that uses Legos and building toys to stoke children's creativity and interest in math, science, and engineering. The facility will host summer camps and serve as an alternative birthday party venue. It will also be a place where kids can play freely.
The newest store is expected to open by July at 15201 Kercheval Ave. in Grosse Pointe Park's business district, which is experiencing a restaurant and retail revival.
Robot Garage owners Sarah and Jonathan Jacobs decided to open the first Robot Garage in Birmingham's Rail District after seeing a shortage of fun science- and math-minded activities available to their daughters, who were regularly attending princess and sports parties. The Jacobs later expanded to a second location in Rochester Hills.
The Grosse Pointe Park store is in a 4,500-square-foot space that will have areas for walk-in building time, camps, and birthday parties. The Robot Garage also staffs math, science, and engineering teachers to guide field trips and competitions.
