CHILDREN may want to start saving their pennies, as a new toy shop has opened in Alnwick.
Well-wishers including the Duchess of Northhumberland joined owner Moira Ging for the opening of Mojo, in Fenkle Street, last Tuesday.
Moira has always worked setting up businesses for others, including stints at the shops at Alnwick Castle and Garden, and this year decided to follow a long-held ambition and do it for herself.
She said: “I just spotted a gap in the Alnwick market for children to have that really good experience coming in with their pocket money.
“There’s something for everybody really, and something to suit every pocket level. If you have got a pound you can buy something, but if you want to push the boat out, you can.”
Another service offered at Mojo is the making up of party or loot bags for children’s parties. Moira said they offer an exclusive Lucky Shake product (a new take on the lucky bag) in different themes, which they can put together for busy mums.
At the opening, the Duchess of Northumberland said: “I have no doubt it’s going to be a great success, and it’s very good for Alnwick so well done to Moira.”
