Toys ‘R’ Us prepares for its York comeback at WH Smith at Monks Cross

Toys ‘R’ Us will return to the city at the WH Smith store in Monks Cross Shopping Park – five years after the last store on Clifton Moor closed in 2018.

Plans have been presented to York City Council to install a new Toys “R” Us sign under the WH Smith logo at the retail park.

As part of the plan, vinyl featuring the Toys ‘R’ Us logo will be placed in the WH Smith store’s windows – reading ‘Toys ‘R’ Us – Now Open in Store.’

According to The Retail Bulletin, the trial, which is due to start in the first half of this year, will last 12 months – or longer if agreed “by mutual agreement”.

The Bulletin states: “WH Smith will pay Toys ‘R’ Us a fixed percentage royalty based on sales proceeds and costs associated with the operational installations of the shop-in-shops will be the responsibility of WH Smith.”

“If successful, there could be a second-stage rollout.”

Products sold at the store include toys, games, and family and children’s items, typically sold by Toys ‘R’ Us. Toys ‘R’ Us prepares for its York comeback at WH Smith at Monks Cross
