GetRetro has launched a new website and now boasts a bigger warehouse.

The firm, which sells licensed merchandise lines spanning science fiction, fantasy, cult genres and classic TV and movie brands, believes the new look and new and improved warehouse, will help to expand its customer base.

“We have a new 7,500 sq ft warehouse that can accommodate the stock that, until now, we had been putting into third party logistics,” Steven Scott, director at GetRetro, told ToyNews.

The ambitious company carries a raft of major brands in its portfolio.

Scott said: “We have around 100 different Doctor Who lines in stock at any one time. We do a lot of Star Wars, Marvel, Transformers and we do cult t-shirts, too. We will also have a decent sized Frozen range available and do quite a lot of Disney Princess. We also have Transformers fancy dress and we are keen on price.”

Notably, GetRetro is already 30 per cent up this year, according to Scott.

As a cash and carry, GetRetro’s general minimum order is £500 but the firm will give £50 worth of free stock of their choice to anyone who quotes ‘ToyNews’ when they place their first order.
