SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — It’s back from the dead! 

Toys R Us is expected to reopen stores just in time for the 2019 holiday season, according to Bloomberg.

The exact locations of the stores haven’t yet been announced, but Bloomberg reports the new stores are expected to be about a third of the size of traditional Toys R Us outlets with play areas and other interactive experiences.
