SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – The Macy’s at Arden Fair Mall is one of 24 across the country to add a Toy R Us department during the holiday shopping season, the two store chains announced Wednesday.

The Toys R Us Express departments will average about 1,500 square feet and will be open starting Monday and running through Jan. 15.

The toy section will offer a condensed assortment of the most popular items from Toys R Us, including products featured on the 2012 Toys R Us Holiday Hot Toy list, the store said in announcing the partnership with Macy’s.

“Macy’s is a premier holiday shopping destination, and many of our customers have toys on their gift-giving lists. By partnering with Toys R Us, the authority in the toy space, we can offer a comprehensive toy assortment and one-stop shopping in this largest gift-giving time of the year,” said Jeff Gennette, Macy’s chief merchandising officer.

The Macy’s at Union Square in San Francisco is also adding a Toys R Us department for the holidays.

The concept might be expanded in the future, the stores said.
