As an old school gamer, who remembers going to Toys ‘R’ Us as a kid to buy my video games, the store’s bankruptcy and closure was a bitter pill to swallow. It felt like a part of my childhood was dead.
However, former Toys “R” Us executive and current Tru Kids Inc. CEO Richard Barry has a plan to bring the iconic store back.
Tru Kids Inc. is looking to reopen multiple stores through out the U.S. in part of a re-branding effort. According to Barry, the stores would be smaller than the originals, prioritizing play areas, and work in tandem with website for e-commerce.
This is not set-in-stone by any means, but I hope they make it happen.
