The Entertainer stockpiling toys ahead of Brexit

Retailer has stockpiled 100 container loads of toys to ensure there are no shortages this summer.

The Entertainer is taking measures to ensure that it doesn’t suffer from a shortage of toys this summer in the event of a no deal Brexit, with the retailer stockpiling 100 container loads.

Gary Grant, md of the retailer, said it has doubled the usual amount of containers sent into the UK at this time of year, making sure that it had stock in place ahead of any potential port hold ups.

“There will be no shortage of toys in the UK,” Gary commented. “The items we ship from the Far East, we have brought the containers forward to make sure we have adequate stocks.

“It might take three months for things to settle down [after Brexit]. The second biggest time for buying toys is Easter.”

The move comes as The Entertainer is celebrating sales rising more than 10% over the Christmas trading period.
