Toymaster members buck trend

Toy market is down year-on-year, but indie sales continue to rise.
Publish date:

NPD data to the end of April showed the total toy market in April was down three per cent, and year-to-date the toy market is down 14 per cent.

Across the majority of UK and much of Northern Ireland, however, Toymaster members continued to trade well, with 80 per cent showing sales were up on the year-on-year comparison.

Trading conditions in the Republic of Ireland continue to be difficult with only 20 per cent of Toymaster members showing a sales increase.

The tough economic conditions continue to make all areas of retail in the Republic of Ireland extremely difficult.
