Toys R Us to 'pop-up' as Hobbycraft plans store for Wycombe
TOYS R Us has revealed its Eden store will be a 'pop-up' shop, as Hobbycraft prepares to open a new store in High Wycombe.
The toys giant will unveil one of its first ever seasonal stores in the former Pumpkin Patch unit in the shopping centre next Friday.
But Toys R Us has not ruled out staying in the town full-time, providing the pop-up store performs well during the festive period.
The company’s Justine Pryce told the BFP: “We are open for the Christmas season and then we will review it.
“I don’t know [what the likelihood of staying is]. Conversations are happening but until we see the success it brings it is hard to say.”
Meanwhile, arts and crafts specialists Hobbycraft will launch on the Wycombe Marsh Retail Park on Wednesday, November 28.
This will be followed by a celebration on the Saturday, with competitions, giveaways and product demonstrations.
Hobbycraft’s new home is in between Comet and Pets At Home.
And Tesco has submitted an early application to Wycombe District Council for the former Platts garage next to Costcutter in London Road.
