Smyths Toys to open in Luton

Toy retail chain is heading to Luton, with a new store opening on Saturday April  28th, 2018.

The store will open at the former Next unit at Chaul End Retail Park on Dunstable Road, a spokesperson for Smyths has confirmed, with the retailer currently on the lookout for sales assistants.

As Smyths continues to expand its retail effort, the future of Toys R Us looks increasingly uncertain, as the firm seeks offers for its entire European arm, as the threat of bankruptcy continues to loom over the business.
