 On Saturday, November 10, Toys“R”Us will celebrate the opening of its 74th store in Kanata, Ontario.  While there are three full-scale retail stores and one Express location currently serving the Ottawa area, this forty-five thousand square-foot store will be located in Kanata at 5661 Hazeldean Road.  The new location will include both Toys“R”Us and Babies“R”Us merchandise.


“We are excited to be expanding our presence in the Ottawa area, and more specifically, in Kanata,” said Kevin Macnab, president, Toys“R”Us, Canada. “We look forward to serving the community better by providing easier access to everyday toy and baby items with a superior level of quality our customers have come to expect from us.”


As Canada’s Greatest Toy Store™, Toys“R”Us offers hundreds of unique and exclusive products.  From classic toy favourites to options for technology-driven tweens, Toys“R”Us shelves are stocked with the hottest toys year-round.  Timing of the Kanata opening aligns perfectly with the second week of Toys“R”Us’ Toy Book. The sixty-four page book is jam-packed with amazing savings and every plaything your child could dream of receiving this holiday season. What’s better than a new toy? A new toy store!



When it comes to preparing for a new bundle of baby joy or ensuring the safety of your little ones, Babies“R”Us is the quintessential stop for both new and expecting moms.  In addition to the largest selection of baby products, such as furniture, car seats and strollers, Babies“R”Us offers a convenient online and in-store baby registry that eliminates guesswork and geographic barriers from gift-giving.  Friends and relatives can easily go to to buy and send the right gift directly to expecting parents.


As part of the Grand Opening celebration on Saturday, November 10, shoppers can take advantage of great savings, free giveaways, demonstrations, face-painting, clowns and other fun activities throughout the store.
