Retail in Focus: 3000 Toys
INDIANAPOLIS, IN (August 2016) GreenLight is proud to maintain relations with several outstanding customers that vary from large to small. But regardless of size, the impact that these companies have on the lives of die-cast collectors is incredible. 3000toys.com is another customer that GreenLight has done business with since the two discovered each other at the New York Toy Fair in 2006.
3000toys is an online store offering retail customers die-cast toys and models from the worlds of aviation, construction, agriculture, transportation and more! The business started out their journey small in August of 1995 – literally working out of the basement of Darin Stratton, owner and President. They have always been a web based company and were one of the first, if not the first to offer die-cast collectibles on the internet. Since the beginning, business has continued to grow steadily starting with their first orders that shipped in ‘95. 21 years later, 3000toys now employs 20 people and ships thousands of orders a year out of a 20,000 sq. ft. warehouse space – that’s a lot of die-cast!
3000toys offers various GreenLight product lines including Hobby Exclusives – that can only be found outside of major retail stores. The store has a few upcoming product lines, including H.D. Trucks Series 7, which will arrive around November-December 2016. This series offers:
- 33070-A -The Walking Dead – Dale’s 1973 Winnebago Chieftain
- 33070-B – 2013 International Durastar – Gulf Oil
- 33070-C – 2013 International Durastar Ambulance – F.D.N.Y
With such a huge selection of GreenLight, collectors will be anything but disappointed in their options. Darin Stratton stated “We call Greenlight the hottest name in diecast. The themes and licenses they’ve developed are just what collectors have been looking for.” To see the rest of the various products that the store carries, check out their website HERE.
