Zappies, based in West Sussex, distributes ranges from many of the biggest names in the toy industry, including Character, Flair, Jakks, Tomy and many more. The company, which counts a number of successful niche online retailers among its customers, has experienced a big upswing in sales since the UK lockdown began on 23rd March; online retail is proving a lifeline for families stuck at home with nothing to do, and in March alone the company was 65% up on the previous year as a result.
Zappies is keen for suppliers to know that it can provide a solution during the pandemic. Its third party warehouse is staffed by key workers, so trading continues unabated, and turnaround upon delivery is approximately 24 hours, offering suppliers a swift and convenient route to market. Mass-market suppliers in particular are encouraged to contact Zappies – the company’s experience in the online space can provide an attractive stopgap for suppliers whose usual channels have been cut off by lockdowns and the closure of major toy store chains.
