This certainly isn’t the first year stores have opened their doors for marathon shopping hours. Toys R Us operated with similar hours last year, for example.
Here is a peak at what Toys R Us is offering in terms of LEGO here in early summer. It’s an interesting mix of newer 2012 themes, and earlier stuff that I am surprised is still so well represented on the shelves. Alien Conquest and Harry Potter in particular each have a pretty big presence.
With barely a week until Christmas, Toys R Us is making it easy to do last-minute gift shopping. The corporation announced in a Monday that its stores nationwide will remain open from 6 a.m. Dec. 21 until 9 p.m. Dec. 24, giving shoppers 87 consecutive hours to do their shopping. The extended hours exclude stores in Paramus, NJ and Puerto Rico, as well as express and outlet stores.
A big display of Monster Fighters right when you walk in the door at Toys R Us, plus Super Heroes. I wonder how well Monster Fighters is selling compared to a licensed brand such as Avengers.
