NEW YORK (WTVO) – Toys R Us is expected to reopen a limited number of stores by the end of 2019.

According to Bloomberg, the stores will be about a third of the size of the traditional stores, but have play areas and other experiences. An e-commerce site will also be launched later this year.

Last year, Toys R Us closed all of its stores after filing Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2017. Earlier this year, Toys R Us emerged from bankruptcy as Tru Kids.
