Toys R Us reopens
 

 
New York(CNN Business)Toys "R" Us is opening a new store about a year after a planned relaunch of its brick-and-mortar presence failed.

The retailer's parent company, WHP Global, announced it will open a store at New Jersey's American Dream mall in mid-December. In a press release, the company said the 20,000 square foot, two-story location is "reminiscent of the beloved toy store customers know and love," and includes an ice cream parlor, multi-level slide and, of course, rows of toys for purchase

It will be the only standalone location of the storied brand within the United States currently.

Toys "R" Us announced in August it will open "shop-in-shops" in 400 Macy's locations beginning next year. And its website remains operational, as do about 900 stores overseas.

Like other retailers, Toys "R" Us has been hurt by shifting consumer habits with more people shopping online or at big-box stores, including Walmart (WMT) and Target (TGT). The pandemic only catalyzed those trends.

Toys "R" Us re-opening might come too late for a revenue boost for this year, since it's opening during the end of the holiday shopping season. But its arrival might be welcome for last-minute shoppers and also help bring more foot traffic to American Dream, which finally opened in October 2020. The 3-million-square-foot property features a indoor theme park with more than 35 rides, roller coasters and attractions and a water park.

New York-based WHP bought Toys "R" Us from Tru Kids Inc. in March 2021, after Tru Kids' plans to open about a dozen standalone smaller stores across US malls didn't pan out. Instead, the company opened only two locations ó one in New Jersey and another in óTexas in late 2019. Both closed in early 2021, with the company blaming Covid-19.

I actually did all my Christmas shopping for the kids at toys stores this year.

Call me ole school but I prefer it over ordering junk on Amazon.

I took my kids to the toy store back in October to get a feel of what they wanted for Xmas, then came back and scooped everything up a few weeks later.

they price everything in the store way too high, that's why they went out of business....... you could go in that joint and they would have sh*t that has MSRP right on the box "like baseball cards" and toys r us would charge over the price everytime on everything. It also wasn't like $1 over price it was like 5-10 over price on even small sh*t like $20 items would be $25-30

That damn giraffe was such a great marketing strategy

Plus that’s where I first learnt how to open up toys I couldn’t afford and stuff them in to my bag

I still remember bringing batteries from home just so I can use the remote control cars in the store cause my mom could never afford to buy one

This would be a big deal if they were actually reopening on their own but I don't see too many guys going to Macy's when they can just go to Target or Walmart to get the same exact toys or games. That nostalgia will wear off fast.

They do have 2 stores. 1 in Texas and 1 in NJ. The Macy's website is additional

I never noticed that but I believe the real reason toys r us didn't survive is in addition to the internet like an Amazon.com, walmart.com etc, Xmas is the only time the store will have heavy shoppers. Anywhere before and after that it was quiet. They would have to implement something more than toys(babies r us) to survive.
