Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans in the UK got their first chance to meet the Turtles in person, when the foursome made their first in-store appearance at Argos in Merry Hill, Dudley. The response was impressive as more than 200 fans of all ages turned up to meet and have a picture taken with their half-shell heroes.
All children who attended received a Turtles eye mask and there was 20% off all Turtles toys and role-play products on the day to promote sales of the consumer products range. By the end of the day all of the role-play products displayed in the store had been sold!
Fans weren’t the only people excited to see the Turtles – the Argos store staff were also overjoyed to see the Turtles. “It was brilliant to have the Turtles in our store,” Nicola Hodgetts, Customer Service Manager at Argos Merry Hill. “They were a huge hit with a number of the parents here today back in the 80’s – so seeing fans of all ages being really excited about meeting them and seeing the brand new range of Turtle merchandise is just great.”
The Turtles will be making a series of appearances at three Westfield shopping centres across the UK, giving plenty more UK fans the chance to meet the awesome foursome.
