Entertainer-480The Bishop’s Stortford store will open on 23rd July, and the Romford store will have its grand opening mid-September.

Both Bishop’s Stortford and the Romford stores are located within popular shopping centres, and will provide choice for families visiting the popular centres, in addition to creating many new jobs in the area. The Romford opening marks the second Entertainer store to open in the busy Essex town.

To celebrate the two new store openings there will be plenty of fun activities such as special character appearances throughout the day, in-store demos of latest product, along with special seasonal promotions.

The stores will also celebrate their grand opening with a special trolley dash undertaken by two local charities Isabel Hospice for Bishop’s Stortford, who provide free specialist end-of-life care to the people of Bishop’s Stortford and the surrounding villages. The second charity for Romford is yet to be confirmed.

Managing director, Gary Grant, commented: “We have a solid footprint right across the UK on both the high street and in shopping centres. We are really excited to be expanding our retail base in Bishop’s Stortford and Romford, and are also looking forward to our first store opening in Northern Ireland in just a few weeks’ time.”
