Toys R Us Set to Return to Rockford?
We all said good-bye to Geoffrey giraffe a few months ago, but there's a good chance we will be saying hello again.
We spent the summer watching the end of Toys R Us. From the clearance sales to the sad giraffe memes, we thought future kids will never be able to shop the Toys R Us halls.
Until this week.
CNN Money reports that Toys R Us could be coming back, rebranding and trying to take the toy industry back.
CNN reports, "the company said it is considering 'a new, operating Toys 'R' Us and Babies 'R' Us branding company,' the filing said. The plan would 'create new, domestic, retail operating businesses under the Toys "R" Us and Babies "R" Us names, as well as expand its international presence and further develop its private brands business'."
So when will we be able to shop with Toys and Babies R Us again?
We have no idea.
My guess? Either an online store will become available this holiday shopping season, or we'll see something new next summer.
