    I once needed a specific folder that costed $11.00 on Amazon and I couldn’t wait for the shipment to arrive, so I went to Zakon’s and was shocked to see it was $3.49!

    Mr Zakon A”h was the one who suggested a school supplies list

    Great store!

    Every word in the article is so true, and like comment #1 wrote, the prices are competitive.

    We tend to think that Amazon is for sure cheaper, but it’s really not true. I have seen great prices at Zakons.

    Love shopping at zakons!

    I find that they have everything I need amd have compared their prices to amazon. They are usually comparable and sometimes cheaper than amazon!

    I especially appreciate the services. Friendly and patient, even when my kids are screaming that they want everything!

    Mr. Naparstek is a role model. I wish other stores would see and learn from him.

    When my fancy watch broke and I was leaving for overseas, Mr. Naparstek saw my predicament, could’ve marked it up etc. sold me a great Casio, still working 2 years later…

    I always notice Mr. Zakon giving tzedoko to the mishulachim that stop in. We should shop by him and support our own. And their prices are comparable.

    Love Zakons!

    As a bochur Zakon’s is the best and easiest store to shop pens and notebooks for the notes you write down during learning!

    When ever I need a few toys and games to raffle of in school or camp I stop by Zakon’s on my way home, best collection and best prices!

    I remember Rabbi Zakon ah he was so kind. I remember his grandchildren used to pump up the balls with him, and learn with him in the back. The little Zakon and Naparstek boys.
    And Rebitzen Zakon she knew everyone that walked in. I recall she even suggested shidduchim. 😉
    Zakon’s is the best store in CH!

    My children love shopping in Zakon’s. My older son told me that he met his shliach from Yeshiva there, my younger son told me that he met his learning teacher from camp there and my daughter told me that she met her friend there.
    The Naparstek family makes a real Family Store environment which creates a worm and welcoming feeling!

    Living in a far remote place on Shlichus is hard specially for our chidren, when I come to CH for 48 hours during the Kinnus I don’t have the time to shop toys for them. Mr. and Mrs. Naparstek are so kind to take a order over the phone, so all I need to do is just to make a point for a couple of minutes to pass by the store and pick it up!
    Thank you and may you have much Hatzlacha!

    I have done a few flash visits to C’H from abroad and “THAT” Toy Store is the one I encountered great customer service in and considering the size of the store (not massive, by any means) it carries a great selection. Always a pleasure to shop there.
    Thank you.

    So nice!

    I once bought an electronic toy that was lime 40.00 and I used it for two days and it broke. They gladly let me exchange it. I was sooo surprised. (And greatful) my son had paid for it with his hard earned money.

    I remember Rabbi Zakon sitting with a sefer towards the
    back of the store. A very good influence to remember this,
    especially in our times.

    As an out of towner, I remember someone telling me to go to zakons and I didn’t know what they were talking about – but I know now 🙂 I loved going! I knew I could always go in if I needed something and they were so helpful and kind!

    Kudos to the Naparsteks who run a store that keeps getting better and better. We’re always amazed how neat and organized it is. Keep up the good work and continue to be a wonderful example to other store owners in Crown Heights.

    Zakon’s is a great store. The Naparsteks are very kind and wonderful people. I have a great memories of being in Bais Rivkiah 9th grade before being an out of towner was the “in thing” I would stop into Zakons and Mrs Zakon and I would talk….. She sensed that I was homesick ….. Thank you

    BS”D What really amazes me is his patience with a 20 cent item is equivalent to a $50 item

    They would rather go there than anywhere else such as the playground or library or even other stores. They beg to be taken there.

    these store owners really deserve every compliment they get. they’re pragmatic about their selections so you know the latest gimmicks are available at a competitive price, but at the same time, as they say, they don’t carry “dangerous” toys. parents and kids will have a kid friendly shopping experience and you know that if you send your kids by themselves they’ll be treated honestly and ethically, down to the last penny. also see their names around as participant donors of prizes for the various neighborhood tzedakah auctions. yasher koach and keep growing!
