Here we go again...

Toys "R" Us is opening a new store ... again

This location is close enough to me that I'm going to be checking it out pretty shortly after it opens.  I'm curious to see what it's going to be like.

Everytime I see an old TRU location I still think fondly back on it. I hope this is successful (unlike the last time). Maybe they will have better luck with one big store like this. If this is successful it'd be cool to see them try to ad a few more, and keep this very limited in a few major market cities.

The new flagship store held a preview event on Wednesday night.  They may be open as soon as tomorrow.

But then there are the Macy's locations that have been operating for at least the past couple of months.  Has anyone been checking these out?

I took a peek at the toy section at a local Macy's a little while ago and it looked like a bomb went off. Stuff scattered all over the place.  Looked a lot like the toy section of TJ Maxx or Kohls.  Just a haphazard assortment of various toys in no particular arrangement.  I couldn't even tell you if they had any SW figures or not as I couldn't find a spot where it looked like action figures were supposed to be.

Our Macy's was like that also. Still a lit of current Hasbro in the mix, I saw new Transformers and Spiderman stuff, but no Star Wars. The interesting thing I noticed on a trip last weekend was all the Toys r Us signage that was there when they set it up is now gone, replaced with some generic Christmas signs instead. I guess that partnership ended fast!
