Speaking in April, head of property at The Entertainer, Andrew Milner-Walker said, East Street was a 'great location' to open a new store.

He added: "We are delighted to bring The Entertainer to Chichester.

“Working together with the landlord we look forward to delivering a great new toy shop in West Sussex.”

It was expected that the store would offer nine jobs. A spokesman also said the opening hours will be in line with the shopping centre, closing on Sundays.
