After 37 years under Sally Lesser, Henry Bear’s Park has sold to a new owner – Kas Sharma, a senior manager at Natick-based MathWorks, a tech company, according to Boston Business Journal.

Lesser, who founded the toy store, announced her impending retirement in June. Henry Bear’s Park has locations at 685 Mass. Ave. in Arlington Center, Cambridge’s Porter Square and Brookline.

Sharma has said he’ll run the stores with the same staff, same philosophy, and he’ll keep all three stores open, according to Boston Business Journal.

He lives in Brookline with his wife and their toddler.

The store is named after David McPhail’s children book.
