Paramus, N.J. — Toys ‘R’ Us has opened a 6,500-square-foot retail store at the Westfield Garden State Plaza Mall in Paramus, a western suburb of New York City. The new store, which opened on Saturday, Nov. 4, marks the first brick-and-mortar store the company has opened since it filed for bankruptcy in 2017 and closed all of its stores in 2018. Compared to the retailer’s previous big box stores, the new store follows an experience-driven format with playscapes, Lego sets and other interactive activities. Customers can purchase items in-store or access an online directory of additional inventory through touch screen displays. Toys ‘R’ Us plans to open a second store of similar design in Houston, Texas, on Saturday, Dec. 7.
