Here is a quick post to document this pristine Toys R Us that may still be sitting vacant. These photos taken in January 2019 show a store that appeared to still be open until closer inspection. The property had been recently purchased so that may explain why the lights were on, trying to attract a new tenant. This location is almost directly between the mall and the Kmart previously featured on the blog. A lot of vacant Toys R Us locations are in the process of being converted to other uses or have had the signage taken down.
Later in 2019 Houston will get one of the 2 planned new Toys R Us locations, the first since the company closed all of the USA locations as part of their bankruptcy. The new store will be a much smaller location than their normal stores were. It remains to be seen if the reboot will be successful or not, but we here at the blog wish them success.
Had to stop by the next morning to see this place in the day.
