Barnstaple’s High Street is expected to welcome a national toy retailer later this year.

The Entertainer is set to open a new store in September, according to the retailer’s website.

The toy shop will go into the building vacated by This Is It, which closed its doors in April after being unable to negotiate a new lease.

The retailer is also advertising job vacancies on its website, including an assistant manager position.

The Entertainer was founded in 1981 by husband and wife Gary and Catherine Grant. It has more than 140 stores across the UK, with Taunton, Torquay and Plymouth currently the closest to North Devon.

The Gazette has approached The Entertainer for comment.
