Thames & Kosmos details support for brick and mortar shops and virtual showroom

Thames and Kosmos have put into place plans to support brick and mortar shops over the coming months with the offer of ten per cent discount for shops placing their ‘first order back’ throughout December and January.

The move arrives as the board gaming and educational toy specialist acknowledges the struggles that brick and mortar retailers have faced over the course of the year.

“So many of our core shop customers have been hit hard this year with lockdowns and restrictions and we’ve been fortunate enough to support our valued customers, whether it was through social media campaigning or our reopening offer back in June,” said Julia Loeser, science kits sales and marketing manager.

“Our bricks and mortar customers are always at the forefront of our business and with London Toy Fair in January and Spring Fair in February cancelled we wanted to find a more useful way to offer the discount we would have done in “normal” years to those customers hit hardest.”

On top of this, any customers who place a carriage-paid order that is eligible for the discount in December or January can choose between a free Dino Egg Filled CDU at RRP £48 or a carton of our Brainwaves games at RRP £81.00. 

“We are also supporting our loyal customer base by promising to maintain our 2020 trade prices for the whole of 2021, except for some prices which we plan to reduce. 

“Additionally, we are in the planning stages of a virtual tour showroom at the end of January when Spielwarenmesse in Nuremberg would have been taking place and where customers old and new can take a virtual tour of new 2021 offerings.”

Places will be limited and Thames and Kosmos urges customers to get in touch early to secure their slot.
