Brian McLaughlin appointed Toymaster retail manager

Published on: 6th July 2018

Brian brings with him many years experience of the toy trade from his time with both Toys R Us and E.L.C.

Toymaster’s operations manager, Yogi Parmer, commented: “I hope you will join me in wishing him every success.

The timing of this appointment shows that the board believes in both the future of independent toy retailers and the opportunities for both member expansion and to gain new members. The retail landscape continues to change and the removal of Toys R Us from the market place will allow space for specialist toy retailers to open stores in locations now devoid of a destination toy shop.

Additionally, it has been noted that those independents closing their doors in recent months have, mainly, not been members of buying groups, and it is the belief of your board that if independents are to flourish being a member of a group is key.

Once ‘up to speed’, it is a key part of Brian’s role to also assist our membership in ‘Helping Members Trade More Profitably’ by ensuring they make the most of all the benefits membership of Toymaster offers.”
