The store, currently located on Route 20 in Brimfield, will be moving to Southbridge sometime this summer. The Four Eyes family–owners Val and Al, and their fun-loving kids Alex and Kat–are creating lots of surprises inside the store. "We offer old time joke favorites like itching powder, hand buzzers, as well as thousands of gag gifts, practical joke and prank props. The focus of Four Eyes is good humor and fun for everyone. That’s why we’re thrilled to have Trevor the Stilt Walker here this month," Pontbriand added.
