With key dates in the calendar – such as Halloween on 31 October and, of course, the run up to Christmas – Toymaster members have been busy working on new activations and initiatives to draw in the customers.
Stewart Miller will be taking part in The Mighty Pumpkin Hunt in Newtownards between Friday 22 and Saturday 30 October. With the tagline ‘Let your munchkins find the pumpkins’, children can hunt the letters in various shops and solve the puzzle to be in with a chance of winning prizes.
Meanwhile, Philip Morris has teamed up with The Pumpkin Patch Hereford which is running an Instagram competition to guess the weight of the golden pumpkin. The winner gets a £100 Philip Morris voucher.
Looking further ahead to Christmas, and the buying group has launched its 2021 Christmas catalogue.
