The Entertainer readies first store opening in Belfast

Toy retailer The Entertainer is set to open its first store in Belfast next month.

On August 13th, the firm will open its doors in Belfast’s CastleCourt Shopping Centre, where special appearances from Lego’s Ninjago’s Kai and Lloyd will entertain fans throughout the day.

Boasting 3,400sq ft, the flagship store will also create various new jobs.

Plus, in-store demos on the latest toys will also be held during the opening, as well as seasonal promotions, face painting, a balloon artist and a gift card lucky dip.

Gary Grant, MD and founder of The Entertainer, said: "After experiencing such solid growth across the rest of the UK, we are really excited to be extending our brand and introducing our first store to Northern Ireland,” reports Belfast Live.

“The CastleCourt shopping centre offers a strong retail position for this flagship store as it attracts large numbers of family shoppers who are demanding more toy shopping choice. We look forward to bringing joy and wonder to the children of Belfast.”
