Want to find the Toys R Us Black Friday deals before everyone else does? The toy retailer is offering a store map this year to help consumers plan out their holiday toy buying spree. Similar to the Walmart Black Friday map, consumers can simply enter their zip code and get a customized layout of their local Toys R Us store, complete with the location all of the best Thanksgiving and Black Friday deals.
Spend Less Shop More reports that shoppers can go to the Toys R Us website and enter the toys they are interested in the search box provided. The location of the item will pop right up on the screen.
It doesn’t look like the Toys R Us store maps are printable yet, so make sure to load the general store map onto your phone, then note shelf spots for your hot deals separately.
