A city centre toy store has announced it will be closing its premises after 25 years.
Staff at the Nappy Pin and Toymaster, in Commercial Street, said the decision had been taken amid adverse trading conditions.
A spokeswoman said “long-standing adverse trading conditions” had forced the shop to close.
But she added that the Toymaster shops in Broughty Ferry and Cupar will remain open.
As a result of the closure there may be an impact on the total number of people employed by the company, which specialises in toys, children’s- wear, prams and nursery goods.
The premises has appeared on the website of estate agents Graham and Sibbald.
It lists an expected price of £400,000 for the tenement block, which includes the ground-floor retail unit as well as three further storeys, an attic and a basement level.
The family-owned business, set up by Alex Stewart in 1971, issued a statement which said: “The proprietors regret to confirm that as a result of the long-standing and continuing adverse trading conditions at our Commercial Street shop in Dundee it has been agreed to cease trading at these premises, although the date for this has yet to be decided.
“The business will continue to operate at our other existing premises at Gray Street, Broughty Ferry, and at Bonnygate, Cupar.
“The decision to cease trading at Commercial Street may have the effect of reducing the number of people employed in the business, but no decisions have yet been taken.”
The statement added that staff were saddened to have made the decision.
Toymaster stores are not centrally owned.
Instead, shops are independently owned and operated and use the Toymaster brand name to promote their business and gain access to a wide range of suppliers.
