The 51,000-square-meter (550,000-square-foot) facility will service retail distribution to the country's 48 store locations and e-commerce operations throughout France, as well as expedite online order fulfillment to customers in Belgium, Luxembourg and Monaco. Located approximately 47 kilometers (29 miles) south of Paris, the logistics campus became operationally functional in late May, and the adjacent headquarters for Toys "R" Us France is scheduled to open June 22.
"Integrating our three previous fulfillment centers in France into one central logistics hub creates greater operational efficiencies for our business, while allowing us to better serve our customers through our growing omnichannel capabilities in Europe," said Antonio Urcelay, CEO, Toys "R" Us Inc. "The Saint-Fargeau Logistics Campus provides us with a single point of distribution from which to ensure the hottest toys and baby products are always available for consumers, whenever, wherever and however they choose to shop with us."
