Edwardsville, Ill (KSDK) - An Edwardsville toy store is back in business thanks to $77,000 in support from the community.

The owner of Once Upon a Toy had to close the doors a few weeks ago when she said the bank called in the store's small business loan.

A long-time customer and former employee started an online campaign to save the store and it worked.

Citizens and fellow business owners helped by donating $77,000.  The store reopened on Friday.

Once Upon a Toy has been in business in Edwardsville for more than 25 years.  There is also a location in St. Louis.
