Disney Store to open on 15 August

Disney Store will be joining the Whitefriars line-up on Wednesday, 15 August.

Marking its Canterbury debut, Disney Store has taken a unit in Gravel Walk opposite Sports Direct. Disney Store will introduce its unique retail experience to Whitefriars in the form of a pop up, which will offer a wide range of exclusive Disney merchandise, providing something for everyone including a vast range of toys, apparel and accessories that suit every age group, with ‘cast members’ providing entertainment and greeting customers.

The store will stock the latest product ranges including Incredibles 2, Furry Tail Friends and Back to School, alongside a range of seasonal merchandise in the run up to Christmas. Sixteen jobs are expected to be created by the move.

Graham Burridge, Managing Director, Disney Store Europe commented: “We’re delighted to open a pop-up Disney Store at Whitefriars. The store features a fantastic range of Disney, Marvel and Star Wars merchandise and is the perfect place to find the toys, gifts, collectibles and everyday treats for all the family. Our staff are looking forward to welcoming the people of Canterbury over the coming weeks and months.”

Whitefriars Manager Peter Scutt adds: “Disney Store is a great addition to Whitefriars and will provide customers with an exciting retail experience.

“This summer sees the highest occupancy rate since the centre opened in 2005/6, with JD Sports also commencing trading on Saturday, 11 August in Whitefriars Square.”
