Were you sad when Toys R Us closed last year? This news will make you super happy! Toys R Us Stores are re-opening this year!
The toy store chain, which shuttered all its stores last year, will reopen this holiday season with about 6 brick-and-morter stores – a huge decrease from the more than 700 stores that had been open – and an e-commerce website.
The stores that are opening won’t be the same as the Toys R Us we knew and loved, though. They will be about 1/3 smaller – around 10,000 square feet – and will include experiences like play areas. I am super excited about the thought of play areas. You can leave your kids to play with one parent while the other does the holiday shopping, so everyone will be happy!
We always loved wandering around Toys R Us because it was the largest toy store and only dedicated toy store in our area. Our kids were always enthralled by everything they had in stock. Even though these stores will be smaller, I’m super excited to see this news, and I hope they open a store in our area.
No other details have been released yet. I have to admit – I can’t wait to find out more and to hear when the stores will be open. How about you? Are you excited to hear about Toys R Us Stores re-opening??
I’m not happy that they’re back. This store left us high and dry on the cash back promised at CouponCabin when they supposedly closed two years ago. Another example of corps dumping their responsibilities and commitments for ways they can profit in future… :(
