Toy store and fashion chain on The Moor

Two new shops are set to open on The Moor.

The Entertainer, the country’s biggest independent toy retailer, is to open its 93rd UK store in a retail unit in the new markets building, opening its doors next month.

Fashion chain Select is also moving in, taking over 6,000 sq ft in the old Woolworths building, with Theatre Delicatessen taking over the rest of the premises.

Gary Grant, managing director of The Entertainer, said: “We have long wanted to open a new store in this vibrant community and provide a toy shop experience that is missing here.”

Select owner Cafer Mahiroglu said: “We’re thrilled - we feel it will be a welcome addition to this area of the city centre.”

Ranald Phillips, for landlords Aberdeen Asset Management, added: “Our investment has meant we have been able to conduct positive discussions with key retailers such as these.”
