Getting a jump on other retailers, toy store ToysRUs is throwing open its doors at 9 p.m. on Thanksgiving night.
We're excited to welcome customers at ToysRUs stores across the country for what has become an annual tradition for many families after Thanksgiving dinner is finished, said Greg Ahearn, Toys R Us' chief marketing officer.
The world's leading toy retailer said it would issue the ToysRUs Thanksgiving weekend circular Nov. 24. The 28-page circular, offering more than 100 deals, will be displayed in newspapers across the country.
Customers will get a chance to check the circular online at Toysrus.com to plan their shopping expedition. Customers can shop for 26 hours straight until the store's closing time at 11 p.m. Friday.
We know our customers like to get an early start on their Black Friday shopping, so we're offering more savings than ever and providing even more hours to save by opening our stores at 9 p.m. on Thanksgiving night, said Ahearn.
On Black Friday, the first 100 customers will avail a 48-page coupon booklet valued at more than $500 in savings. The booklet will also provide other deals such as a 60-day access to the Savers Guide Web site.
Deals for the season include 10 percent cash back and a 2012 Super Savers Pass, exclusively for RewardsRUs members, on purchases $200 and above. Customers can avail a free $50 ToysRUs gift card with purchase of any Apple iPod Touch. They also get to take advantage of unbelievable 50 percent discounts on LeapFrog Leapster, My Baby Alive, Riptunes player, Sylvania Tablet and netbook.
Black Friday savings will be offered between 5 a.m. and 1 p.m. Offers will range from the impressive half priced deals on the LeapFrog Alphabet Pal to a free $19.99 Imaginarium starter kit, with the purchase of any Imaginarium or Crayola easel.
The discounts will continue through the weekend. These will include a $10 gift card, and $100 Savings with ANY Xbox 360 console purchase, plus other additional deals.
The store's Facebook fans will get an opportunity to enter exclusive sweepstakes Nov. 17. An hour before the store opens on Black Friday, the winner will get a $1,000 ToysRUs gift and a personal shopper.
