Entrance to Toys R Us and Currys retail park
Entrance to Toys R Us and Currys retail park
Now here's something you don't see everyday - a Toys R Us store (and giraffes, come to that)! This building was constructed in the mid 1990s as there wasn't another toy store around here, and so we desperately needed one (our nearest Toys R Us before then was in Lakeside in Thurrock!) Currys was previously over the road next to Charlie Browns, but they clearly needed a bigger store so they moved in next to Toys R Us. The old Currys and Charlie Brown's building is now B&Q, which was constructed in 2004 and opened in early 2005. There are, therefore, now two B&Q stores next to each other in the same retail park (the other B&Q store has been there as far as I can remember)! B&Q call it on their website a "Mini Warehouse".
