Toys ‘R’ Us Re-Opening at the Jersey Shore?
We've barely even had a chance to miss Toys 'R' Us and it's already back. Will there be one at the Jersey Shore?
As of now, it's too early to tell.
Tru Kids Inc. CEO Richard Barry, who used to be an executive at Toys 'R' Us, plans to open about 6 stores in the U.S. just in time for the holidays. If we're not lucky enough to get one, a new online store is also expected.
What can we expect from these "new" Toys 'R' Us stores? According to Mashable, a smaller space (about a third the size of the old stores) and more "experiences" like play areas.
Last year when Toys closed its doors, we all lost a small piece of our childhood. Tru Kids CEO Richard Barry said:
We have an incredible team focused on bringing Toys 'R' Us and Babies 'R' Us back in a completely new and reimagined way, so the U.S. doesn’t have to go through another holiday without these beloved brands.
As convenient as online shopping has become, there's still nothing like wandering the aisles of Toys 'R' Us.
