However, as the sign in the window here at 306 E. Ninth St. just east of Second Avenue shows... the children's toy, game and book shop extended the closing sale through Sunday — with "almost everything" at 50-percent off until then. Dinosaur Hill's hours are noon to 5 p.m.
As previously noted, Pamela Pier, the shop's tireless owner, has decided to retire after 37 years in business.
Moving forward, next-door neighbor Veselka will eventually move into the Dinosaur Hill space. Meanwhile, Dinosaur Hill employee Karen McDermott and her husband, Jason McGroarty, opened toy store the March Hare down the block early last week. Pier is said to serve as a consultant for the store.
