Letting Is Childs Play

A local mum's toy sales web business has been so successful, that she has expanded by opening a shop in Castle Donington.

Marc Ballard of Salloway acted for the landlord of the unit at the Bonington Complex in Castle Donington, an ideal spot as it is close to Derby, Nottingham and Leicester and major road routes.

Jo Crockett, owner and manager of Ted's Toy Shop, said that her web-based toy sales company did so well, that the next move was getting commercial premises which would enable her to run the website and have an onsite shop from where she could trade.

Jo said: "I'm delighted with the space for the business. It is great that the products are available for customers to see. Having my own shop is something I have always wanted to do and now that it's happening it's all really exciting.

"I've travelled all over the county trying to find the right gift for my child and friend's birthday presents. I realised that other mothers were probably in a similar situation and took it as an opportunity to start Ted's Toy Shop."

Marc said: "It's been a difficult few years in retail and business but it's great to see a local company doing well and expanding its premises from a web-based business to a shop. Ted's Toy Shop will fit in really well in the area."
