Welcome Back Geoffrey: Toys R Us Returns To Texas Inside Macy’s Stores
Welcome back to Texas Geoffrey. You heard right. The world's favorite giraffe is returning to Texas. Talk about a major comeback. Toys R Us is set to be just about everywhere by the time the holidays hit.
The toy giant will be inside every US Macy's within the next few months. Some are opening as early as late July. These stores are said to be anywhere from 1,000 square feet to 10,000 square feet inside Macy's flagship stores in Atlanta, San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, Houston, and Honolulu.
Watch below for the announcement.
I don't want to grow up...I'm a Toys R Us Kid
These new stores are going to come with some pretty cool perks. There are plans for demonstration tables for all new toys and photo opportunities with a giant Geoffrey.
Even Abilene had a Toy's R Us store which later turned into a Geoffrey's. I remember shopping there often with my kids as they grew up. As I'm sure with most kids their excitement peaked at the sound of the automated Geoffrey greeting every customer as they walked in.
Then, sadly the toy brand went bankrupt and closed all its stores in 2018. It did try a few attempts at reorganizing but those attempts failed.
Now, new life is being breathed into Toys R Us with Macy's. The relationship with Macy's started when the two companies agreed to sell toys through Macy's website. Now, before you know it, you'll be able to walk into a Toys R Us in every Macy's store. Stay up to date with the progress by receiving email alerts and more online.
So, be on the lookout. Geoffrey is coming back to Texas. If you want to hang out with even more giraffes, you've got to check out this Airbnb. You won't believe your eyes.
