DirectBuy of Boston South Offers "Play" Areas for Parents and Kids

DirectBuy of Boston South has developed a “Kids Zone” area in their Rockland, Mass. club.

Rockland, MA, February 07, 2008 --( By purchasing directly from the manufacturer, DirectBuy members can not only save a lot of money, but enjoy the process as well. And while it can be a lot of fun to pick out your new kitchen, the new floors for your bathroom, it also requires your full attention. That’s a luxury members with children don’t always have. That’s why DirectBuy of Boston South has developed a “Kids Zone” area in their Rockland, Mass. club, so parents can focus on the task at hand and kids can enjoy the DirectBuy experience, too.

Though not a supervised area, the Kids Zone features a number of things to keep school-age children occupied and entertained: books, craft, puzzles and games. The Kids Zone also includes a flat screen television with DVD player and Playstation 2. Children of members can watch movies or play video games.

“Let’s face it, most kids would rather go to the dentist than watch their parents shop for their next home improvement project. By the same token, it’s difficult for members with children to get the most out of the experience and do the research they need to do if they’re concerned about the kids getting fidgety. The Kids Zone gives children of DirectBuy members a place to play games, watch TV or even make new friends with other members’ kids while the grown-ups have their ‘fun’,” said John Massaria, owner of DirectBuy of Boston South.

Creating fun things to do for children is nothing new for DirectBuy of Boston South. The club recently donated three brand new, regulation-sized foosball tables to three local charities: Children’s Hospital in Boston; the Marshfield Boys & Girls Club; and the South Shore YMCA’s Mill Pond branch in Hanover.

“Because we are so entrenched in the community, we have an even greater incentive to make this a one-of-a-kind, unique shopping experience because many of the members are our friends, neighbors, even relatives,” said Massaria. “The Kids Zone and donations to groups like the Boys & Girls Club and the Y are just an extension of that philosophy.”

Since 1971, DirectBuy franchises have offered members the opportunity to enjoy enormous savings on home furnishings, home improvement items, entertainment and outdoor products and accessories by buying wholesale, directly from the manufacturer. As one of DirectBuy’s largest New England showrooms for the past 21 years, DirectBuy of Boston South has also been an active contributor to many local non-profits and charities, including the South Shore YMCA, Homes for Our Troops and Children’s Hospital.
