A NEW toy store will open on Colchester High Street this Saturday.

The Entertainer will open up in around half of the former JJB store, which has only been used as a temporary Christmas store since the sports shop closed in June 2011.

The grand opening will be marked with a trolley dash for Colchester Toy Library, a visit by the red Power Ranger and discounts on Lego and Power Rangers toys.

Nine jobs will be created.
