SMYTHS TOY STORE has told staff in a Dublin branch to take down a sign on the door saying that products made in Israel have been removed from the shelves.

The sign was placed on the window of the Jervis Street branch yesterday.

A statement from Smyths said, “We do not engage in national or international political affairs.

“One store last week took products from one country off its shelves. This decision has now been reversed.

Our customers should be free to make their own decisions.

The sign was widely shared on social media.

The Galway-based retailer sells products for children in 30 stores across Ireland and imports from countries across the world.
