Toy Galaxy opens new Watford store and champions indies

Published on: 25th November 2021

The new Toy Galaxy store opened in the Atria shopping centre in Watford on Saturday, November 20th.

The new independent toy store has opened up in Atria Watford, just in time for the peak Christmas shopping period, bringing Toymaster member Toy Galaxy‘s store estate to five outlets. The Watford branch joins existing stores located in Barnet, Ealing, Hatfield and Witney.

The latest toyshop has replaced the former Disney store in the shopping centre and can be found on the upper mall opposite M&S.

A spokesperson for Toy Galaxy told the Watford Observer: “We finally open our doors this morning for our new branch in the Atria shopping centre, Watford. We’d love to see everyone there – we have a number of great offers and giveaways.”

To mark the opening, the retailer also launched an opening competition where customers could be in with a chance of winning a highly sought after, limited edition Pokémon set.

The address of the new store is:

Unit 146

Atria Watford

Toy Galaxy has also produced an advert highlighting the importance of supporting independent retailers, a subject close to the company’s heart.

Toy Galaxy said: “Each year, millions of pounds are spent by big national companies in creating adverts that aim to pull at your heart strings with the hope that they continue to be a household name. Well now it’s time for the little guns to have a go, with a
story that resonates with us and millions of other small independent businesses across the country.”
