Disney Store

The Disney Store and Marvel Store are subsidiaries of the Disney Consumer Products Division which in turn is part of The Walt Disney Corporation. The stores sell Disney and Marvel branded products including clothing, toys, decor, collectibles and other fun objects.

The first Disney Store was opened in The Glendale Galleria in California on March of 1987 with the purpose of selling Disney branded merchandise and memorabilia. The chain began expanding overseas in the 1990s. It quickly grew to over 700 stores by 2001.

The rapid expansion confused the core mission of the Disney Store endeavor. In 2004 The Disney Store sold the store chain to The Children's Place while trying to keep tight control over the merchandise. The partnership did not work out well and Disney ended up re-acquiring the chain in 2008.

In 2009, The Disney Company purchased Marvel Entertainment. Marvel Entertainment was started in 1939. It had built an enviable collection of characters including Captain America, The Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, etc.. The Disney Store merged the Marvel Store with the Disney Store.
