Here’s the details:
– 300-400 KB pop up stores will open during the 2018-19 holiday season as a quick way to test each market, while the best performing of those pop ups will be reviewed in early 2019 for potential expansion to one of the larger permanent 600-800 stores.
– Simon is among the many mall organizations that replied with interest to Kassoff ‘s LinkedIn post and are now aboard as investors; banks, outside investors and private equity are not involved in this version of KB Toys.
– Of special interest to collector communities, a dedicated “Toy Nerd” in each store will help buyers with in-store hot off the delivery truck purchases, along with events like meet and greet autograph sessions with toy designers.
How do you think K•B Toys will do if they return?
