Building Block Toys Suffers 70k in Water Damage

Building Block Toys,  a favorite of many in both the Lakeview and Wicker Park neighborhoods, has incurred a significant amount of water damage. The 1st bout of damage came when work was being done behind the Wicker Park store at 2130 W. Division Street in the alley. A flood to the Wicker Park shop ensued.

The second round of water damage occurred at the Lakeview store located at 3306 N. Lincoln Avenue this past Saturday as a result of the storm we had that temporarily shut down Lollapalooza.

Shop owner, Katherine McHenry, stated they've incurred close to $70k in damage and insurance will only cover up to $15k.

A sidewalk sale last weekend helped raise funds to bridge the gap to repair the damage and replace damaged inventory.
