Play time: Opening date confirmed for Smyths Toys

It will be opening next to Pets at Home

Smyths Toys Superstores will open its first Lincoln store at the Tritton Retail Park this Spring.

As previously reported, the retailer will be going into the area formerly occupied by Bensons for Beds and Office Outlet, with the latter having moved to the Valentine Retail Park.

Smyths Toys Superstores will officially open on Saturday, March 23, with work already underway at the site and posters up in the windows.

Smyths Toys currently has over 100 stores throughout the UK & Ireland including one at the Victoria Retail Park on King Edward Street in Grimsby.

The arrival of a new toy chain will be a welcome boost for the city after Toys R Us fell into administration last year, leading to the closure of the Lincoln store.
