The company says that the new store will be home to "a whole host of family favourites" from children’s toys, board games, jigsaws, adult collectables to big brand names such as Lego, Playmobil, Fisher Price, Nerf, Barbie and LOL. Toyland will open the new 2,300 sq.ft store on a 10-year lease.

It currently has shops in Otley, Blackpool, Scarborough, Harrogate, Huddersfield, Halifax and Keighley.

Toyland will open its new 2,300 sq.ft store at the centre on a 10-year lease. It will be located in the lower mall, next to Clarks, and will create several jobs.

Westmorland Shopping Centre manager Nick Pitt said: “I’m delighted that we’re able to add a new toyshop to our retail offering at Westmorland Shopping Centre.

“It’s an exciting time for us, with plans for major investment in a hotel and leisure development at the centre, which will radically transform the shopping experience for the benefit of shoppers and retailers alike.”

“We’re always striving to ensure that we have the best possible retail and leisure options for our customers, and Toyland Toyshop, along with the recent opening of Clarks outlet and the creation of two new 250 sq.ft kiosks, is a great addition to our line-up.”
