Toys "R" Us Pops Up On Fifth?
Brownstoner is reporting that toy giant Toys "R" Us is planning to set up a number of temporary "pop up" shops in smaller spaces along Brooklyn's commercial strips, during the holiday season. A sign has already been spotted on Fifth Avenue and 11th Street at the "Jeans Express" space.
So, Fifth Avenue, is this good for the neighborhood? Bad? Will you shop there this holiday season? And, most importantly, what effect do you think this pop up shop will have on Fifth Avenue's Needgaard toy space, which was recently set up above the pharmacy? Is this really "shopping local"?
Let us know what you think!
