Smyths Toys Superstores is to create 35 new jobs with the opening of a new outlet in Newtownabbey this summer.

The new store, located in a 21,500 sq/ft unit at Valley Retail Park, near Rathcoole, is due to officially open on Saturday, July 30.

The company says its expansion will create around 35 jobs in the local area, ranging from retail assistants to management positions.

Liam Joyce, spokesman for Smyths Toys Superstores, said: “We offer our consumers an extensive range of high quality products at competitive prices across a great range of toys, bikes and video games. We look forward to welcoming 35 new staff and new customers from the Newtownabbey area to our store.

“We are looking for motivated, enthusiastic staff and encourage them to find out more on our website at SmythsToys.com, where positions are currently being advertised.”

The Valley Retail Park opening will take the company’s total store estate in the UK and Ireland to 91, with plans to open a further 10 to 15 stores over the next year.

Smyths Toys’ move into Valley Retail Park means all units at the Church Road site are now occupied.
