Great news! Toys R Us is making a comeback this holiday shopping season. Macy’s will have a Toys R Us in every store by fall with hopes it helps drive holiday spending.
Macy’s announced the toy store brand will be in every one of its locations in time for Christmas shopping according to NBC. The in-store Toys R Us shops will vary in size from one thousand to ten-thousand square feet.
The Toys R Us brand has attempted a number of comebacks since it closed all its stores in 2018 due to bankruptcy. The Macy’s locations will begin to open later this month with plans to have all open by October 15th.
Between Oct. 15 through Oct. 23, Macy’s stores will host nine days of in-store events at the shops, including family-friendly activities and daily giveaways from brands like Barbie, LEGO and more.
Toys ‘R Us will forever be a memory in our generation’s heart, but one North Carolinian took matters into their own hands to make sure the store lives on through helping other people.
A North Carolina shopper who would like to stay anonymous bought $1 million worth of toys at Raleigh, N.C. Toys “R” Us stores last week and reportedly donated them to children.
Employees at a Raleigh location said that they spent all of Friday, which was the last day the store was open for business, boxing up toys for the anonymous buyer.
On Friday, June 29th, all Toys “R” Us locations around the country were permanently closed after the chain filed for bankruptcy last summer and failed to find a new buyer to take over operations.
Thanks to this Anonymous shopper, a lot more kids have the chance to be Toys “R” Us kids one last time!
