To Our Valued Canadian Customers:
TOYS“R”US CANADA-WE ARE OFFICIALLY HERE TO PLAY AND HERE TO STAY!
Toys"R"Us (Canada) Ltd. announces the completion of the acquisition of its business by Fairfax Financial Holdings Limited. Toys R Us Canada is now a proudly Canadian-owned and operated business employing more than 4,000 Canadians and Canada’s only exclusive coast to coast business with over 80 locations dedicated to kids and babies across Canada.
As Canada’s leading toy and baby retailer, we are thrilled to be part of the Fairfax family and to now operate as a reinvigorated company that is 100% Canadian. I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to our valued customers for their loyalty with us over the last several months. We are passionate about our business and want Canadians to know that we are champions of play with the newest trends and hottest toys in our stores. We believe that parenting is an adventure and Babies“R”Us Canada will be there along the journey to help parents.
Over the next few months, we will roll out exciting new innovations that have proven successful at our Langley, British Columbia and our South Barrie, Ontario stores including dedicated play areas, interactive stations for kids and mobile pay. Beginning this month, we are delighted to host 10 Starlight Dashes across Canada in which seriously ill children from the Starlight Children’s Foundation will have three minutes to race around the store and fill their carts with toys.
This summer, we will be moving full steam ahead across Canadian communities with the message that we’re here to play, here to stay! At Toys“R”Us we believe that moments of joy, endless possibilities of fun and the wonder of imagination all happen through play. We will be challenging kids, parents, grand-givers and kids at heart to embrace the power of play. Look for play events at your local store. All customer programs like Baby Registry, “R”Club™ loyalty and wish list are running just as customers know and love. Gift cards purchased in Canada can be redeemed anytime online and in any store location across the country.
Thank you for choosing to shop at Toys“R”Us Canada and Babies“R”Us Canada! We are excited about our future and look forward to inviting you back to see what’s new with us. Visit www.toysrus.ca and www.babiesrus.ca for exciting announcements and new events happening throughout the summer.
