FAO Schwarz Toy Store Reopening
FAO SCHWARZ IS MAKING A COME BACK
(CNN) – Just in time for the holidays, a childhood favorite will open its doors at a new location.
FAO Schwarz was famous for its Fifth Avenue store.
It was even featured in the Tom Hanks’ movie ‘Big’.
This location closed in 2015.
Now FAO’s parent company 360 group says new locations will open in November.
That includes a new flagship in New York.
The 20,000 square-foot store will be located at 30 Rockefeller Center in midtown Manhattan.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the toy store will be staffed with product demonstrators, magicians and costumed actors.
FAO will also open airport stores, including one at New York’s Laguardia airport.
