A new toy shop will officially open in the Swan Centre on Saturday- just in time for Christmas and will be celebrating with special promotions and a charity trolley dash

The 3,000 sq ft store is the latest branch of The Entertainer chain of toyshops. Throughout the day and there will be  special appearances from Lego Ninjago’s Kai and they are promising “plenty of fun in-store demos of the latest toys and special seasonal promotions.”

The store will also be holding a special trolley dash undertaken by a local charity, Smile Support, a regional charity providing much needed full and part-time support to families with disabled children and young adults up to and beyond the age of 25, across Hampshire and West Sussex.

Gary Grant, Managing Director and Founder of The Entertainer, said:

“After experiencing such solid growth across the UK, we are pleased to announce the opening of the Eastleigh store. Eastleigh and the centre itself continues to offer a strong retail position for our store as it attracts large numbers of family shoppers who are demanding more toy shopping choice on the high street and within shopping centres. We look forward to bringing joy and wonder to the children of Eastleigh.”

‘Smile are thrilled to have been chosen to take part in the trolley dash at the new Entertainer store in Eastleigh. This opportunity comes at a perfect time when we are busy fundraising for the purchase of new toys and games for our brand new respite care centre in Hampshire. It will be wonderful to welcome our children with new toys donated from the Entertainer when they come to stay’.

    Pleased to see The Entertainer in Eastleigh. A great shop from a company that seems to be ethically based.

    When the kids were small there was a RockBottom Toy store (where Shakeaway is/was) and a branch of Early Learning Centre in the Swan Centre (and there was Woolies of course) which saved us having to go to Southampton. So I think a good toy shop is something that’s been missing from the mix in Eastleigh.
    Yes you can get stuff from the web or Argos but for children there is something magical about a visit to a toy shop.
