Meridian confirmed as site for Toys R' Us

Meridian could soon become the first site of a new concept Toys "R" Us store, a spokesman said Friday.
Carol Fuller, public relations manager for Toys "R" Us, said the company plans to lease a 4.2 acre site near Bonita Lakes Mall for a new concept store that will include a Toys "R" Us, a Babies "R" Us and Kids "R" Us all in the same 42,000 square-foot store.
Fuller said early plans call for the store to open late this summer or in early Fall. "That's what we're hoping for," Fuller said.
The property where the store is scheduled to be built is owned and managed by CBL &Associates Properties Inc., which also operates Bonita Lakes Mall. The lot is located across from Sears' east mall entrance and adjacent to Cellular South and Great Southern National Bank on Bonita Lakes Drive.
Tommy White, marketing director of Bonita Lakes Mall, said the store will be a big addition to the area.
