Toys “R” Us to Open Pop-Up Shop in Staines
Toys “R” Us will open the doors of a new store in Staines this weekend. The new shop is located in the Elmsleigh Shopping Centre and will employ sixteen staff. It replaces a branch of Mothercare that has closed-down.
This store may have only a temporary existence as a pop-up shop because the unit’s lease is due for renewal in 2017. Toys “R” Us will take advantage of the Christmas shopping season and will later make the decision whether to lease the unit again.
Mothercare had wanted to vacate the property because its business was unprofitable in Staines. The nursery and children’s clothing retailer has shut a number of stores in recent years in a bid to return the company to profitability. During the same period Toys “R” Us has been steadily expanding.
