CIRCLEVILLE – Less than a year ago Toys R Us decided to close its doors forever, well that ended up not to be completely true. The owners of the company decided to stop the bankrupsy and try to bring the brand back to life. Announced in August of this year Toys R Us will relaunch as Geoffrey’s Toy Box. Now it seems like Kroger has picked up the pursuit of this toy giant and is offering it in their stores coast to coast for the season.
Starting this month, Geoffrey’s Toy Box branded merchandise and displays will appear in participating Kroger Family of Stores with a selection of 35 children’s toys, ranging in price from $19.99 to $49.99. The holiday program will feature exclusive toys from Animal Zone®, Imaginarium®, Journey Girls®, Edu Science®, You & Me®, and Just Like Home®. Product assortment will vary by location.
“Geoffrey’s Toy Box delivers a unique shopping destination within Kroger stores,” said Robert Clark, Kroger’s senior vice president of merchandising. “We’re excited to offer Geoffrey’s Toy Box this holiday season to provide our customers with the opportunity to purchase a selection of toys once exclusive to Toys “R” Us.”
“We are thrilled to partner with Kroger to bring a curated collection of product from our beloved portfolio of brands to American consumers this holiday,” added Richard Barry, EVP at Geoffrey’s Toy Box.
