FAO SCH­WARZ MAK­ING A COME­BACK FOR HOL­I­DAYS

USA TODAY International Edition - - MONEY -

Sto­ried re­tailer FAO Sch­warz will open a new flag­ship store in Man­hat­tan, its first free­stand­ing lo­ca­tion since it shut its doors three years ago. The toy em­po­rium, known for its starring role in the 1988 Tom Hanks movie “Big” and its often over-the top mer­chan­dise, will be in Rock­e­feller Plaza start­ing Nov. 16, re-emerg­ing in time for the first hol­i­day sea­son in decades with­out Toys R Us. FAO Sch­warz, now owned by Three­Sixty Brands, also will be a pres­ence within other re­tail­ers, in­clud­ing Bloom­ing­dale’s and Neiman Mar­cus, over the hol­i­days.
