WAYNE, NJ, 2016-Aug-01 — /EPR Retail News/ — Outlet retailing has taken off over the past couple of years, with a growing number of outlet centers1 and increased popularity among consumers for off-price shopping2.
And, it’s no wonder why – if you’re anything like me, you love a good deal. A friend asks, “Cute top! Where’d you get it?” My response, “At the Outlets – and, get this – it was 60% off!”
There’s a certain thrill that comes with outlet shopping. It’s not just any old shopping trip – it’s a day-long event with friends. Wake up early, grab a coffee, hit the shops and see who can find the biggest deal from some of the top designers and retailers – featured side-by-side in one easy stop.
While there’s clothing, handbag and shoe brands a plenty, a saving grace might just be the fact that the world’s greatest toy store is conveniently located amidst the pack. Need to stave off the kids’ boredom? Check. Looking for a last-minute birthday gift? Check. Seeking out the best deal on toys? Check again.
At around 3,000-5,000 square feet, Toys“R”Us Outlet stores are a lot smaller than the typical 45,000-square-foot full-size locations, but consumers will be amazed by the wide selection, product variety and engaging atmosphere that these discount stores offer.

Upon entering, you’ll find a LEGO destination and a “What’s Hot” shop, highlighting a rotating selection of top-selling toys, making it easy to find a great gift.
Walking around the store, you’ll come across well-known brands from Barbie to NERF to Fisher-Price; hot properties like Shopkins, Star Wars and Finding Dory; and board games, educational toys, books and more.
