The new JEM store is strategically located a stone’s throw away from Jurong East MRT station, and the Jurong East bus interchange. This newest location is the first in Singapore to unveil a unique, new store concept which highlights the various stages of child development, helping parents and gift-givers more easily choose the perfect toy when shopping for their children or loved ones. The store not only provides the same exciting store experience for kids, but it is also designed to ease store navigation, simplify product selection, and enhance the overall shopping experience for adults.
A grand opening celebration will be held on Friday, September 9th at the JEM store where visitors of all ages can explore their love of learning and play, complete with a line-up of special guests, childhood character meet-and-greets and gift cards for the first 50 customers through the doors.
“At Toys”R”Us, we’re focused on bringing joy to children and making lasting memories for families across Singapore,” said Adelene Teo, General Manager of Toys”R”Us Singapore. “Toys provide entertainment, but they also play a crucial role in childhood development, helping children hone their cognitive, motor, psychosocial, emotional and linguistic skills, while fueling their imagination. This exciting new concept store in JEM, Singapore’s third-largest suburban shopping space, enables parents to clearly understand which toys are most suitable for their kids, and gives even more children the chance to enjoy magical moments inside our store and walk away with the perfect toy.”
Building on insights from parents, Toys”R”Us has redesigned the layout and signage of this newest store in Singapore to center around essential childhood development stages, such as Role Play and Dress Up, STEM and Learning, Infants and Pre-school and Creativity development, making it easier for parents to find the right product for the age and development stage of their child, and which appeals to their unique interests. Central to the store concept is this new, more intuitive navigation system and signage in which products are categorized based on type rather than the brand. For example, there is a remote-controlled vehicle section where all brands of vehicles in this category are located, helping save time and simplifying the shopping process. The store will also incorporate play areas throughout where children can touch and play with toys on display, adding to their instore experience.
We are committed to on-going engagement with customers, listening to feedback and continually evolving to provide the best range of toys that fuel a child’s imagination and the best possible shopping experience for both the parents and gift-givers.
