A BASINGSTOKE shopping centre has announced the re-opening of a children’s toy shop as lockdown restrictions ease.

Festival Place has informed customers that The Entertainer is now open for click and collect, on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

The Basingstoke store was nominated by the chain retailer to run as a ‘dark store’ meaning it will remain closed for browsing, but open as an order collection point.

Customers can collect items between 9.30am and 12.30pm and 1pm and 5pm on the days it is open.

Festival Place has also announced that Japanese sushi restaurant Kokoro will be opening for takeaway orders from 12pm to 9pm Monday to Saturday.
