MOSCOW (Reuters) - British toy store Hamleys opened its largest shop in the world on Tuesday in central Moscow despite an economic downturn in Russia that is forcing buyers to cut back on spending.
Launched amid fanfare after seven years of renovation work in what was the Soviet-era department store Detsky Mir (Children's World), the new shop covers 6.750 square meters and features a rocket made of nearly two million Lego bricks.
