Toys 'R' Us Is Returning With Massive New Store


Toys 'R' Us is planning to open a massive new store, which will bring its total number of standalone locations in the US to one. Parent company WHP Global says the 20,000 square foot store at the American Dream mall in New Jersey, set to open in mid-December, will feature an ice cream parlor and multi-level slide, CNN reports. The chain closed all its US stores in 2018, the year after it filed for bankruptcy. It kept an online presence and opened two stores, one in New Jersey and another in Texas, in late 2019, but they struggled during the pandemic and closed early this year. Before COVID hit, the chain had planned to open 10 stores by end of 2020. "Toys 'R' Us is back and it's back in a mega way," Toys R US CEO Yehuda Shmidman tells USA Today. He says WHP Global, which became the chain's new owner in March, doesn't plan to stray far from what founder Charles Lazarus created.
