Toys R Us is already planning to make a comeback in the US next year, with 400 new shops opening in Macy’s department stores across the States. In addition, Toys R Us stores in Singapore and Hong Kong have remained open, recently offering LEGO fans a number of exclusive Bricktober sets.

“Toys R Us today is a vibrant business with over 900 stores and e-commerce sites across 25+ countries generating over $2 billion a year in sales and growing,” said Yehuda Shmidman, Chairman and CEO of parent company WHP Global and Toys R Us, “especially with the new launches underway for both the US and UK markets.”
