A family fun day featuring a giant robot will mark the opening of the new Toys ‘R’ Us store and the creation of 35 new jobs at Parkway Retail Park on the Dublin Road this Saturday.
The Retail Park will be hosting a fantastic family fun day on Saturday (October 3) to celebrate the new addition, featuring a giant walking interactive robot and the superb Animal Roadshow petting zoo.
There will also be face painting and balloon modelling as well as attractions inside and outside the store.
The ceremonial ribbon will be cut on the store by Limerick Mayor Liam Galvin, and families have been urged to get there as early as possible to get the best of the fun both inside and outside the store.
“We’ve been looking for the right store in Limerick for some time so we are delighted to now be here with a great team of new staff ready to enjoy the Christmas festivities in Parkway Retail Park,” said store manager Jawad Akhtar.
“We’d like to invite families, young and old, to join us for our family fun day which will include face painting, balloon modelling and promotional merchandise as well as a very special opening offer.
“Our new store provides exceptional convenience for time-strapped parents and offers a wide selection of toys and products for kids of all ages, including many that can only be found at Toys ’R’ Us.
“Our toy-trained sales associates are always on hand to help customers find great gifts for every special occasion or just for fun.”
The company is expecting to see big trade in Lego, as well as toys relating to the Star Wars, Shopkins, and Frozen franchises in the run-up to this year’s festive season.
The new store also includes speciality baby products retailer Babies ‘R’ Us, and features a wide selection for newborns and infants, including cribs and furniture, car seats, strollers, bedding, clothing, toys and plenty of unique gift ideas.
The store is the second Toys ‘R’ Us location to open in the Republic of Ireland following the September opening of a store at Westend Retail Park in Blanchardstown, Dublin.
