Iconic retailer Toys R Us had fans going wild this week after it appeared to provide an update on its long-awaited return to the UK.
You may recall that the beloved toy store chain broke hearts across the country when it sadly went bankrupt in 2018, closing all stores in Greater Manchester and across the country due to a change in consumer habits and, like many traditional physical stores, a struggle to keep up with the rise of online shopping.
but in october2021, it was revealed that Toys R Us is slated toopens its physical doors in the UK once again.
It was announced that the brand would be achieving a "significant milestone".
It was revealed that it had signed an exclusive long-term license agreement to relaunch brick-and-mortar Toys R Us and Babies R Us stores across the UK, with an anticipation that we would start opening this year, and now it has been confirmed that the return of retail, in fact, is for "soon".
The UK Toys R Us website also appears to have beenrenamed aand updated to reflect its upcoming reopening, with a new advance announcement to be posted tomorrow (January 5) at 9 a.m.
Social media has since been awash with buyers anticipating his return to the UK, after the update was sent to fans via email and the website was updated.
While the exact date of when, where, and how many stores will reopen across the country has yet to be confirmed at this time, more could be revealed tomorrow.
When the return of Toys R Us was first announced in October 2021, at the time there was a plan for web sales to UK shoppers to begin in the coming months, and initially the company could look to operate from existing locations in Australia while working to set up local teams, offices and logistics here.

“Since Toys”R”Us' return to Australia in June 2019, we have scaled rapidly as customers return to the beloved brand and our e-commerce model has proven successful.
"My team and I look forward to developing technical and business relationships with UK-based suppliers and partners and engaging with the many long-standing customers and loyal fans of Toys 'R' Us in the UK."
