Iconic Toys "R" Us Making a Comeback in Minnesota

Another sign that our economy might be slowly recovering after the pandemic is announcements of new businesses opening.  That latest includes an iconic toy store that our world loved in the 80's and 90's.  I lived in a small town in Iowa and we weren't one of the lucky spots to have a Toys "R" Us store but when we made the trip to Des Moines, that was a stop we begged our parents to make.

Kids should start asking for money to be added to their Venmo account and do a few extra chores because they are going to need that cash when they visit Toys "R" Us at the Mall of America.  An opening date hasn't been announced yet but it sounds like the store will be making an appearance in this world-famous mall.  See where it will be located here.
