Good news for shoppers and workers as Christmas time nears.
The Toys R Us Express Store at Heritage Place in Owen Sound is now open.
Vice President of Store Design and Marketing Liz McDonald says they have hired almost 10 staff to start.
McDonald notes as the volume picks up during the holiday season -- they may need to hire more staff.
If you're looking to apply -- McDonald recommends visiting the store itself or the Toys R Us website.
McDonald says the new Express Store will provide local residents with easy access to the hottest toys of the season -- without travelling to the nearest full-size stores, located in Barrie and Guelph.
She add's they've been researching and scouting the Owen Sound location for about two years now.
It's one of 30 Toys R Us Express locations to open in the past three years.
