According to media reports, Smyths Toys has cancelled its long-standing Christmas promotion of €/£10 off for every €/£50 you spend. According to the Irish Mirror, the retailer made the decision due to the Covid-19 pandemic, saying that it cannot risk having large volumes of shoppers flock to stores in a short period of time with social distancing in place. The decision will apply to the retailer’s stores in both Ireland and the UK.

A Smyths spokesperson said: “Unfortunately, our 10 off every 50 promotion will not run for 2020. We cannot responsibly encourage a large volume of customers to visit our stores in a short time period while adhering to social distancing guidelines.

However, we are excited to announce we will have more promotions and super savings on your favourite toy brands throughout the autumn-winter period.”
