Retailer Celebrates Military Families Nationwide with Special In-Store Savings, Partnership with Select Naval Exchange Stores and More
WAYNE, NJ, 2017-Nov-06 — /EPR Retail News/ — Each year the nation pauses to thank our country’s Military members for the numerous sacrifices they and their loved ones make throughout the year. While there are no words or dollars that can make up for the time away, Toys“R”Us® and Babies“R”Us®, is announcing today a special military discount – as a way to demonstrate our appreciation for our country’s service men and women. Customers with a valid Military identification card will receive 15% off in-store purchases* from Saturday, November 4 through Saturday, November 11.
All military personnel – active, retirees, reservists and dependents – can get a head start holiday shopping and enjoy this sale to check-off those must-have hot toys for the little ones in their life. Forgot to print the emailed coupon? No worries, stores will have coupons available at check-out for qualifying customers to redeem.
“As a former Marine, I understand and appreciate what it means to serve your country, as do the hundreds of veterans who work for our company,” said Mark Johnson, Executive Vice President, U.S. Marketplace Operations, Toys“R”Us and Babies“R”Us. “This is a great opportunity for us to do a little something extra to support and show our deep gratitude to the millions of military members (current and retired) and their children, particularly during a time of year where we are all so focused on families.”
Each year, Toys“R”Us hires thousands of U.S. veterans, while also supporting our team members who have been deployed overseas or domestically. To make it even easier for men and women in uniform to shop with us, Toys“R”Us recently launched a test with the Naval Exchange Stores (Nexcom) to stock shelves with toys from our exclusive science education product line, at locations in Virginia, Hawaii and California. Military stationed at Fort Bliss Military base in El Paso, Texas also have a Toys“R”Us express store located on the base.
For the past 14 years, Toys“R”Us has also been the number one corporate partner for the Marine Corps Foundation’s Toys for Tots program. Each holiday season, the Toys for Tots Program collects new, unwrapped toys and distributes them as Christmas gifts to children in need in local communities around the country.
On Saturday, November 11, all Toys“R”Us and Babies“R”Us stores (excluding express and outlet stores) will host a National Veteran’s Appreciation Day in-store event from 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm (local time). Geoffrey the Giraffe will be available to take photos with kids of all ages, there will be themed coloring sheets and more.
