What is the best part of being a small business in the Bozeman community? 

Our favorite part is having the opportunity to connect with the community, and really get to know our customers. We love seeing the familiar faces, watching their families grow, and helping them pick out the perfect gifts for the kiddos in their lives.

What's the story behind opening your store?

Twenty years ago, after seeing the need for a great toy department in Bozeman, Shanna Frieling opened Giggles in Gallatin Valley Mall. As a new parent, she wanted to create a fun, family-friendly shopping experience for Bozeman families. She also saw a need for education in the toy industry and worked to build up a staff of informed employees who could assist customers in their selections; sending them home with toys that they were guaranteed to love. 

What's something you want people to know about Giggles?
