PARAMUS, NJ – The soon-to-be-open Toys ‘R’ Us in Paramus is giving one lucky person the chance to get the holiday shopping season started off with a bang.
The toy store is running a contest through Nov. 18 to win a $1,000 gift card to go on a Toys ‘R’ Us shopping spree.
CIick here to enter.Note, entrants must be 18 or older, live in New Jersey or New York and can only enter the contest once.
Toys ‘R’ Us will return to Paramus just in time for the holiday season, with a smaller, revamped store in Westfield Garden State Plaza.
An opening date has not yet been announced, however CNN.com recently reported the toy store is aiming for just before Black Friday.
The new “experiential” 6,500 square-foot store will be a fraction of the chain’s former big box locations that were previously located in the borough. A second Toys ‘R’ Us store will also open this month at The Galleria in Houston, Texas.
The smaller format stores would include interactive play spaces and interactive displays to learn more about products.
While there will be fewer products on the shelves, the chain said sales associates will help shoppers complete sales transactions via Target.com for items not available in the store.
In October, Toys ‘R’ Us relaunched its website with games, action figures, a full section of toys, product reviews and videos. Since the inventory comes from Target, shoppers are directed to buy button at Target.com to complete the purchase.
Customers will be able to take advantage of Target.com benefits including free two-day shipping, same-day curbside or store order pickup, same-day delivery with Shipt, Target Circle loyalty benefits, easy in-store returns and 5 percent off when using a Target REDcard.
With Target’s same-day pick-up and delivery options, Toys ‘R’ Us customers also will be able to get their online purchases ready for pickup or delivery to most U.S. households in as soon as an hour.
Toys ‘R’ Us, buckling under pressure from Amazon and several billions of dollars of debt, liquidated its stores after filing for Chapter 11 reorganization in 2017.
