Several Days After Christmas, Toys ‘R’ Us Closes in Times Square

3 years ago8 views

For more than 14 years, the Times Square Toys “R” Us offered awe, scale and a touch of crowded chaos to its tiny visitors.
New York City is now left without the kind of manifold destination toy store intended to leave every child’s jaw on the floor.
Toys “R” Us occupied that 110,000-square-foot space since 2001, making it among the first retailers to brave Times Square when memories of peep shows past were not so distant.
The store’s lease will expire in January, and the company decided not to renew to save money on rent, said Elizabeth Gaerlan, director of corporate communications for the retailer.
She said the company, which has 17 Toys “R” Us and Babies “R” Us locations in the New York City region, is looking for another Manhattan location.
