New owners of Toys R Us brand ready for a comeback

Local News

Toys R Us may be ready for a comeback. 

The head of the company that bought up the brand now says they’re looking at options that include Toys R Us shops within other stores.  And, maybe bringing back stand-alone stores, but at about a quarter of the size of the old ones. 

The toy company liquidated its business last year, unable to emerge from bankruptcy after a disappointing 2017 holiday season.  

More than 700 American Toys R Us stores closed last spring.
