Popular retailer Toys R Us is back in business after it launched a new website ahead of the festive season.
The toy shop launched in the United Kingdom in 1985 and had a grand total of 105 different locations across the country - it was originally set up in the US.
However, following a period of dwindling in-store sales and failed attempts to sell the business, Toys R Us UK entered into administration in April 2018.
A decision which resulted in the closure of all its stores nationwide, leading to over 2,000 redundancies.
But now it looks like the company is making a grand return to the retail scene, so here is everything you need to know about the re-launch of Toys R Us.
Has Toys R Us returned to the United Kingdom?
After a five-year absence, Toys R Us has officially returned to the UK with a fresh new website.
It is available online at toysrus.co.uk and comes ahead of this year’s Christmas season - and the rush of people stocking up on presents.
A catalogue which boasts around 14,000 toys from over 100 different retailers with the added bonus of next-day delivery.
The company first revealed its intentions to relaunch in October 2021 when it published the following statement: “We are relaunching in the UK in 2022 as a brand new Toys R Us and Babies R Us.
“We can’t wait to support you as we grow and develop together over the coming weeks, months and years.”
Will Toys R Us re-open its stores or will it be an online-only retailer?
During the height of its popularity, Toys R Us had a total of 105 bricks and mortar premises.
Despite this, it is understood that under the current plans the business will re-launch as an online-only retailer.
