KB Toys Could be Making a Comeback in New England
With the recent news about Toys R Us going out of business, a former rival of Geoffrey and his crew is eyeing a comeback, of sorts.
According to a report in Business Insider, KB Toys, which went bankrupt back in 2009, could be making a comeback beginning with pop-up stores around the country during the holiday season. If the pop-ups were successful, permanent mall stores could follow soon after.
I remember going to KB Toys in Newington when my niece was little. It was Black Friday and I clearly remember walking through The Mall at Fox Run and dragging one of those enormous KB Toys plastic bags behind me filled with a bunch Christmas presents.
