Toys 'R' Us is making its comeback in the U.S. after being hampered by the COVID pandemic, forcing it to close its only two remaining stores in the nation in January.

The toy retailer will open a two-story flagship store inside the American Dream megamall in Bergen County, N.J., in mid-December, just in time for the holiday shopping season, and will be the only stand-alone Toys 'R' Us store in the U.S. The store will open with extended hours for the rest of the year.

Toys 'R' Us parent company WHP Global, which acquired the toy company in March, said the store will span 20,000 square feet, featuring interactive experiences, Geoffrey’s Café, ice cream parlor, two-story slide and other branded elements.

It will be located in the American Dream mall near the Nickelodeon Universe Theme Park and DreamWorks Water Park.

“American Dream is a one-of-a-kind unrivaled retail center featuring massive entertainment experiences that make it an ideal destination for families,” Yehuda Shmidman, WHP Global and Toys 'R 'Us chairman and CEO, said in a statement.

“Debuting our first Toys 'R' Us flagship here is a no-brainer,” Shmidman added.

While this is the lone stand-alone store for Toys 'R' Us, WHP said the retailer has over 900 stores in 25 countries.

Toys 'R' Us recently announced that it formed a partnership with Macy’s and would open 400 shops within the retailer’s stores nationwide, starting in 2022. Toys 'R' Us also opened a website in a venture with Macy’s in August.
