New Toys R Us concessions are popping up in WH Smith stores across the UK

Childhood memories will soon come flooding back after it was announced 17 new Toys R Us stores will open up across the UK.

The beloved chain, which went bust in 2018, has been relaunched and will open up concessions in WH Smith stores.

Mini-shops will open up at 17 locations, with three outlets launching on May 25.

Toys R Us has already opened nine shops-in-shops as part the partnership.

And by the end of August, it aims to have opened up 30 more concessions.

Hereford, Leamington Spa in Warwickshire and Fosse Park in Leicester will all see new concessions open on 25 May.

As part of its attempt to bring back a brand ‘known and loved since the mid-80s’, Toys R Us started opening concessions last year after the collapse of the company.

All 100 of its stores were closed, at a cost of 2,000 jobs.

High street managing director at WH Smith, Sean Teal, said: ‘I have seen first-hand how positively our customers have responded to the new ranges.

‘From Hereford to Hastings, today we’ve unveiled the first 17 locations for the new Toys R Us stores in WHSmith.
