The Dinosaur is not yet extinct — Dinosaur Hill toy store, that is.
Pam Pier had planned to close her East Village shop, at 306 E. Ninth St., just east of Second Ave., at the end of November. For 37 years, the place has been her life, but she has been working since age 14 and at 77, decided it was finally time to retire.
But the Dinosaur (Hill) will still roam for at least one more week: Pier announced the store will be open daily, noon through 5 p.m., through Sun., Dec. 6, with everything — including fixtures and furnitures — going for 50 percent off.
