Britian’s biggest toy retailer is to open a 15,000 sq ft pop up store in Carlisle for Christmas 2011. The Toys R Us pop up shop, which will be open from 21st October until after Christmas, is creating 25 local jobs. If the trading location proves successful, Toys R Us bosses will look at negotiating a longer lease in the city.
Toys R Us trialled the pop up shop concept in Kent and South Wales last year. The Carlisle store, which is located at St Nicholas Retail Park, will stock all the major toy brands as well as video games and bikes.
