Giggle Monkey LLC d/b/a Giggle Monkey Toys is a toy store on the square in Dahlonega. Tammy Clower had been an employee when she and her husband, John, decided to take over the business in 2014. The store carries toys that cannot typically be purchased in big box stores which allows it to command higher prices. And though it seems to be a somewhat of a niche market, a large portion of the Dahlonega economy is based on tourist dollars. Many people with higher levels of disposable income form the Atlanta metro area visit Dahlonega on the weeks and are in the market for these types of goods.
They recently closed on another loan with ACE to fund expenses related to opening a second location which will be at the North Georgia Premium Outlet Mall in Dawsonville.
