Dan Reeve, store manager, commented: “We’re thrilled to be opening a new Smyths Toys Superstore in Colchester. We aim to offer a fun-filled shopping experience for our customers with the best range of products at the most competitive prices, not just on our opening day, but all year round. There’s sure to be a tremendous sense of fun and enjoyment for everyone at the store and we invite everyone down to join in the party on October 5th.”
