Hamleys to open new store within Stansted's £80m terminal re-development

Hamleys, the world famous toy store, is to open a larger shop in Stansted AirportÂ’s re-developed international departure lounge.

Due to open on 11 September, the shop will sell an extended range of over 1,000 products and will also feature a dedicated LEGO area.

Ralph Cunningham, retail and brand director at Hamleys, said: “We are delighted to have secured a prime position for Hamleys, The Finest Toy Shop in the World, at Stansted Airport.  Our new larger toy shop gives us the opportunity to widen the range of goods on offer providing an even greater choice of toys, that we will bring to life for the millions of families who pass through Stansted each year.”

Acquired by MAG in 2013, London Stansted is the fourth largest airport in the UK and handles over 18 million passengers a year. The new departure lounge is part of an £80 million project to improve services and facilities for passengers using the terminal.  

MAG’s retail director Beth Brewster said: “MAG has a clear vision to transform Stansted Airport and I’m delighted to announce that Hamleys will join the very exciting list of global brands and exciting new concepts getting involved with our multi-million pound development.”
