Babies R Us Only Stores

Postby Sephiroth4761 » Mon Nov 12, 2012 8:27 pm

Long time lurker...

I'm used to going to BB, WM, and Target on Black Friday but as a first time expectant dad, I'm looking to door bust Babies R Us and I have no idea how crazy it gets.

Since I'm unwilling to skip out on Thanksgiving dinner I plan to go to a Babies R Us only store vs the combo TRU/BRU stores. Based on the ad Babies R Us is opening at 5 am right?

How early do I have to get there to get the $75 mattress, $70 Motorola baby monitor, and the Vicks humidifier? I think I read here last year that those $5 baby wipes and $10 diapers go quick. Is that true?

You might want to call ahead to your BRU store to confirm the opening time. A couple years ago I planned to go there and got there when the newspaper ad said they'd be open and they weren't - the weren't opening until their regular time - it was like they were completely oblivious to the fact that it was BF! They are across the road from a TRU - so I don't know if it was a staffing thing or what - but it was weird. I'm not sure if store managers in BRUs have some say on when they open, or if there is a BRU and TRU/BRU combo around if they let one open later, etc. - but based on my experience, I'd call ahead. That said, when I finally made it in (after a few other stops) - it was by no means a zoo. The most crowded part of the store were the special discounted clothing racks and the car seat area. I hope you get what you are looking for and congrats on the baby on the way!

Yes, definitely confirm with the store. The BRU only stores stock more of the diapers and wipes and from my experience usually have more on hand than TRU stores.

The Toys R Us Black Friday Store Hours web page should list the exact hours for every store, including Toys R Us, Babies R Us, Toys R Us Express, and combo stores. The web page title still says "11/25-26" (last year's dates), but I can confirm that the rest of the page seems to have been updated for 2012. To be safe, I would keep checking the page every now and then, in case there are changes.

Thanks for the link! I checked it and it does say 5 am for my store but I will call them just to confirm.

I go to the BRUs by me every year. I have gotten there 1 hr early and been the only person waiting. You cant beat the 10 dollar diapers and the 5 dollar wipes. Mine has always opened at 5 for black friday but its always good to make sure.

My store only has 5 to 10 people waiting at opening. I have only gone for the wipes so IDK how quickly the other items will go.

Could you tell me where in the ad you saw $5 wipes and $10 diapers? I only saw $10 off Pampers diapers and $15 Johnson & Johnson wipes. Thanks.

The wipes and diapers are on flyer page 28, adscan page 30:

http://bfads.net/Toys-R-Us-Black-Friday ... -432ct-Box
http://bfads.net/Toys-R-Us-Black-Friday ... of-Diapers

Even though they're Babies R Us brand items, they are actually being sold during the Toys R Us 8 pm Thursday sale. The sale price is until "Friday close", so I don't know if that means it will also be on sale at Babies R Us, at those standalone Babies R Us stores that open at 5 am Friday.

Thank you very much! 8)
