Junners toy shop closes

After 116 years of trading, Scottish toy retailer Junners Toymaster is set to close.

The retailer previously revealed it will close via a Facebook message to customers, and over the past few weeks’ consumers have swarmed to the store to snap up the half-price toys on shelves, as owner George Duncan cut prices to clear stock.

Duncan previously revealed that he and his wife chose to close the store due to personal and business reasons.

Plus, an increase in competition from chain stores and online retailers was also a contributing factor to the closure.

Duncan stated that the store could have remained open for a few more years, but preffered to shut up shop while profits were still good.

Duncan said: “It was difficult, but we decided this is the time to close it and get on with our lives,” reports The Press and Journal.

“For the staff, this is very hard, but from a business perspective, it’s the right thing to do."
