HARRISON Dann is the teenager who has taken Eastbourne by storm.

He opened The Toy Stop in Langney Shopping Centre on Monday April 12th – and he says the response has been amazing.

The shop is well positioned near to Tesco, and the former Causeway School student is so excited about his venture.

Harrison said: “I want to thank every one of our customers who has been here to support us, it’s been amazing.

“We have been absolutely flat out. On day one there was a queue going all the way round the corner past Barclays.

“We have a lovely shop, amazing stock and 100 per cent focus on making sure the customer has the best possible experience.

“I can’t emphasize enough how pleased I am with how the first few weeks have been. Long may it continue.”

Footfall is growing

The most popular item so far is the fruit and vegetables squishes.

Harrison said: “Other owners inside Langney Shopping Centre have been very supportive, and centre manager Neil Avis has been great too.

“The footfall in the centre is growing once again after Lockdown, and it’s great to know that more shops are reopening here.

Massive range

“The refurb of the shop has been amazing, and now we have the support and backing of shoppers.

“I am really pleased with how it looks. It’s clean, fresh looking and very attractive.”

The massive range of stock is aimed at toddlers right through to people in their 70s or even older.

Harrison is pleased that new shops are opening at Langney Shopping Centre, and he believes the centre will have an incredibly busy summer.

The extensive range includes:

  • Summer games
  • Pre-school toys
  • Barbie dolls
  • Schleich
  • National Geographic
  • Lego
  • Playmobil 
  • Board games
  • Musical instruments
  • Model kits
  • Pocket money tills

And SO, SO much more.

He said: “I really do believe that LSC is taking off with new attractions coming in.

“Neil and his team are working so hard to make the most of the extension and bring in new attractions.

Exciting future

“Soon, there will be new restaurants which is really exciting and will bring more customers to the centre.

“I have been very impressed with the footfall so far, and I believe that will only get better.

“Believe me, Langney Shopping Centre is determined to extend its offer, which can only be good news for the town and its economy!

The shop is open Monday to Saturday: 9am – 5pm and Sunday: 10am – 4pm.
