The Fountain Arcade Toy Shop in Dudley has recently be re-opened under the ownership of Dave Carter and Martyn Perry.

The business partners and long-term customers of the shop have given to store a major re-design, restoring it to its former 1930’s look.

Former Dudley council worker Carter and business partner Perry aim to keep the shop as well-stocked as it was with a large variety of toys for all ages.

Speaking with Dudley News, Carter commented: “I can’t quite believe we now own the toy shop which we used to visit as kids. We have had so many people coming in saying how glad they are that it is staying as a toy shop so they can carry on the tradition of buying their children and grandchildren toys from the town.”
