(KTXL) — Toys R Us, the beloved children’s toy brand, is officially back inside Macy’s stores with several locations throughout California.
According to the Macy’s website, Toy R Us has 30 locations inside its California stores including two in Sacramento at the Arden Fair Mall and the Downtown Commons.
Toys R Us inside the Macy’s at Vintage Faire Mall in Modesto is also open. The Macy’s inside Stockton’s Sherwood Mall is another open location.
In a July announcement, the retailer said the stores will begin opening in late July and rolling out through Oct. 15. The in-store shops range from 1,000 square feet in some locations while others can be as large as 10,000 square feet.
The larger locations are expected to be at Macy’s flagship stores in Atlanta, Chicago, Honolulu, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City and San Francisco.
The San Francisco Macy’s location is located in the city’s Union Square plaza. The Westfield Valley Fair in San Jose is also a flagship location.
Macy’s previously said that the stores could add an additional 500 to 3,000 square feet during the holiday season to offer an “even wider assortment of products.”
The toy brand returned to Macy’s as part of a partnership with WHP Global, which acquired the Toys R Us brand in March 2021.
Toys R Us filed for bankruptcy in 2017 and soon closed all of its stores in the United States including Sacramento’s previous location on Arden Way nearby Arden Fair.
