Jarrold's named as one of the best toy shops in the UK
A department store’s toy department has seen it named as one of the best toy shops in the country.
Jarrold won department store retailer of the year at the Toy Industry Awards for its shop at the heart of Norwich city centre, which stocks all sorts of playthings from Lego to board games.
Jarrold toy buyer Selina Clarke said the award proved that independent retailers can stand shoulder to shoulder with the bigger brands. She said: “Jarrold was nominated for the award by the UK toy industry so it is nice to be recognised as a family run, independent retailer who has a lot to offer the toy customer. The breadth of toys and games we have, the events that we offer on the toy department throughout the year and our knowledgeable customer service all played a part in us winning this award, it was a real team effort.”
Other winners included well-known brands such as Rubik’s Cube, Fingerlings and Playmobil.
