WHP Global acquired a controlling interest in the parent company to Toys R Us, earlier this year.
"We are thrilled to be taking the reins of the world's leading toy brand at a time when the category is up 16% and consumer demand for toys is at an all-time high. This is a natural fit for WHP, as we can leverage our global network and digital platform to help grow Toys"R" Us and Babies"R" Us around the world," Chairman and CEO at WHP Yehuda Shmidman said in a press release.
Shmidman said in March, that the plan was to reopen Toys R Us stores before the 2021 holiday season and it looks like things are still on track with a mid-October opening date.
