The world-famous London toy store, Hamleys, is to open a branch in Glasgow, giving the city the chain's first Scottish store. The branch is to be located within Frasers department shop in Buchanan Street, in the heart of Glasgow's shopping district. The innovative £1.5m development, while not as large as its flagship Regent Street store in London which is over seven floors, will employ 20 staff and is expected to take up 6000 square feet of store space on the top of House of Fraser from September of this year.

Company chief executive Nick Mather said that Glasgow was chosen as the location for their first store in Scotland because of Glaswegians love of shopping, adding:
"We did a lot of research and found Glasgow is within the top five cities in Britain for spending power per head, so it is a great retail destination for us...We will also be fitting out the store with magicians, jugglers and regular toy demonstrations, as well as having appearances by sports stars and celebrities."

The toy shop is one of a number of recent new shopping experiences to be added to the city's growing portfolio of exciting stores, following hot on the trail of exclusive destinations such as celebrity handbag shop Mulberry, luxury lingerie company Agent Provocateur and computer company Apple, which is opening soon in The Pier in Buchanan Street.
