WHSmith high street managing director Sean Toal said: “We’re known for being the Hub of the High Street by providing customers with a range of great products and services, from books and stationery to Post Office services across 200 locations. With Toys R Us set to be in a further 30 stores by the end of August this gives customers even more reasons to shop with us.

“Retail has that entrepreneurial spirit and I know that many retailers are doing everything they can to make their stores a success, making the sector a major contributor to the economy and a significant employer along the way. That’s why I’m delighted that Toys R Us will be in more WHSmith stores in the future, ensuring our High Streets can continue to deliver the magic for future generations.”
