Here is the first of many TRU stores closing in the Houston area. This Toys R Us in Baytown Texas was built across the highway from the majority of the retail growth that Baytown had in the 1980's around Garth Road. This store is somewhat hidden by large oak trees that block visibility from I-10.
The modern version of Geoffrey looks strange to me.
This store was at the beginning stage of closing down on my visit and still looked normal in some areas. The electronics section was still mostly full.
A whole 5% discount, wow what a deal!
These would have been awesome to have as a kid. I was just born a generation too late.
The bikes selection was very thin already at this store. This would not be the case at other TRU stores I visited.
Babies R Us entrance from TRU.
The few Lego sets left were also a measly 5% off.
A variety of shopping baskets. Hopefully I can score one when the fixtures go on sale.
You can certainly say that TRU had a massive variety of items in their stores.
Final thoughts on TRU Baytown. This store was nearly identical on the inside to the Humble location that flooded during Hurricane Harvey. This store being an older Toys R Us was in really good shape.
