New Hamleys store arrives at London Waterloo Station
Iconic British toy retailer unveils brand new store
Hamleys, the Finest Toy Shop in the World, is unveiling a new store in London’s Waterloo Station, which will open its doors to children and families on Thursday 13 December.
Unwrapped in time for Christmas shoppers to enjoy, Hamleys’ Waterloo Station store, located on the first-floor balcony, will stock over 2,000 toys and games, including brands such as L.O.L. Dolls, Harry Potter, Disney Princess, NERF, LEGO, TY, Peppa Pig, Sylvanian Families, Paddington, Playmobil, Fingerlings and Hamleys’ world famous collection of cuddly teddy bears.
To celebrate the opening, Hamley Bear and some of Father Christmas’ cheeriest elves will be entertaining shoppers and commuters at Waterloo Station from the moment the store opens at 7:30am until Christmas Eve. Christmas will come early as Hamleys intends on gifting its station visitors with exclusive giveaways, discount vouchers to spend in-store and free goodies for the kids.
The new store has helped create ten jobs, becoming Hamleys 28thUK store and its 152nd worldwide.
Ralph Cunningham, Hamleys Group CEO, said: “We are delighted to be opening an exciting new store in one of the UK’s busiest train stations. Hamleys is focused on continually growing our UK store portfolio in locations where our customers want us. We are looking forward to bringing smiles to the faces of thousands of commuters and holiday makers using Waterloo Station throughout the 2018 festive period and beyond.”
