Published on: 23rd May 2019

Conways Bookshop and Quayside Bookshop join from ROI, while UK retailer The Hop Pocket has also become a member of the buying group. 

Trading as Eason Sligo and Eason Quayside respectively, Conways Bookshop and Quayside Bookshop have been announced as one of the latest members of Toymaster. Located in Sligo, the stores offer toys alongside games, books and stationery.

“We wanted to get access to lots of different brands that will enable us to grow our toy business,” explained Conways’ Dierdre Reilly. “We feel that there’s a gap in the market in Sligo, and we’re really excited to be here at the Toymaster show making all these new contacts. Some of our Easons colleagues are members of Toymaster and they have found membership of the group to be really beneficial.”

Conways Bookshop is at 45 O’Connell Street, Abbeyquarter North, Sligo, F91 YF51, while Quayside Bookshops is at Unit 2 Quayside Shopping Centre, Wine Street, Sligo, F91 K510. For more information please email Deirdre Reilly
