Harrison’s having a great time at The Toy Shop…

IT’S now been seven months since young Harrison Dann opened The Toy Shop in Langney Shopping Centre.

The opening created a great deal of publicity for the young Eastbourne businessman.

And eight months on, the shop is doing really well, and Harrison couldn’t be more pleased.

Harrison said: “Of course it was exciting for me at the age of 19 take the plunge and open the shop.

“At the same time, I knew it would be a challenge and require many, many hours of hard work each week.

“It’s paying off. Revenue goes up every month so does profit and now we are hoping for a bumper Christmas.

“We have built up such a regular and very reliable clientele and our customers come back repeatedly, which always pleases me.”

His message this year is buy as early as possible.

Harrison said: “We do have stock – don’t get me wrong – but it is a battle with the shortage of lorry drivers, which has been in the national news.

“The safest way to avoid any dramas or last-minute upset is to come to us as early as possible.

“We are here seven days a week.

“And don’t forget you can also buy from us online. Our online sales are also very encouraging too.”

Harrison is also looking to expand next year by converting the downstairs of the unit in Langney Shopping Centre.

“It’s all looking and feeling really good. If you haven’t tried us yet, come down, you won’t be disappointed.”
