WAYNE, N.J., Nov. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- For deal seekers looking to get an early start on holiday shopping (and walk off their turkey dinner and pumpkin pie), Toys"R"Us® will open its doors at 5pm (local time) on Thanksgiving and remain open through 11pm on Friday, November 24 for 30 straight hours of shopping*. In 2016, the National Retail Federation found that nearly 100 million people shopped brick and mortar stores during Thanksgiving weekend.
To celebrate the official start of this year's holiday shopping season, Toys"R"Us customers can expect to find doorbuster deals, dedicated toy "gurus," and helpful services like Layaway, In-Store Pickup, and store maps to make holiday shopping more convenient. New parents can rest easy (no really, get some sleep) because Babies"R"Us® stores nationwide will be closed on Thanksgiving, but open at 8am on Friday, November 24 with doorbuster savings that shoppers won't want to miss.
And for the millions of people who begin their holiday shopping in early November, now is the time to take advantage of limited time savings and year-round services:
- Military Appreciation Week – Through Saturday, November 11, Toys"R"Us is offering 15% off in-store purchases** to customers who show a valid Military ID.
