The future is looking bleak for toy stores in the Netherlands. Their average turnover is plummeting, and more and more stores are closing their doors. While the approaching holiday season may be the lifebuoy for many toy stores, it is already too late for some, RTL Z reports.
The toy industry in the Netherlands stopped growing in 2009, according to a study by ABN Amro. The number of physical stores is dropping rapidly. In Zeeland it even halved since 2005.
