WHERE’S Wally is the question staff at Niche Comics in Huntingdon are asking for real after a giant cutout of the popular children’s book character went missing from their shop.
The shop is behind a Where’s Wally contest as part of Independent Retailer Month and a 40 inch high cardboard Wally disappeared from outside the shop in the High Street on Friday night.
Now Niche Comics would like him back until the end of the month when they would be happy for him to go to a new home.
Guy Makey, a partner in the shop, said: “Wally was originally standing in the shop but we put him outside in the sunshine as the children were enjoying seeing him as they came past.
“Customers of all ages seem to love Wally and I am sure someone has decided to give him a good home.”
Guy added: “If they can drop him off at the shop or at the Samuel Pepys pub we would be happy to part with him again on July 27. Children are disappointed he isn’t outside the shop any more.”
In the competition, designed to highlight independent businesses, entrants have to find nine small Where’s Wally figures hidden in shops around the town.
Stickers are then put on to a map, available from Niche Comics, and the shop will host a prize draw from completed entries at 3pm on July 27.
