Updating our continuing Toys R Us Canada coverage, there is good news for our fellow Transformers collectors in the provinces: a new website launch coinciding with Geoffrey’s Birthday Bash is scheduled for the first week of September and two new stores will open in 2020.
While the new locations are not known at this time, according to Vice-President of Marketing, Public Relations and Omni-Channel Innovation Frank Juhasz, they will not be in major markets like Toronto. These stores will be larger than the 10,000 square foot Toybox concept which debuted in late 2018, yet aligned with the smaller venue vision of outgoing President Melanie Teed-Murch who is resigning effective September 27th to start a new job.
May the new website and stores be as successful as Melanie’s future endeavors and Toys R Us Canada’s search for its new leader. Remember to join in the discussion on the 2005 boards!
