Department store chain Sears, Roebuck and Co., a subsidiary of Hoffman Estates, Ill.-based Sears Holdings Corp., has plans to re-open its toy business at 20 Sears locations, according to the Los Angeles Times. Scheduled to launch on Aug. 15, the toy shop openings will mark the retailer’s return to the toy market after officially leaving the niche decades ago. The company experimented with the toy market several years ago, introducing temporary KB Toys shops inside hundreds of Sears locations, but eventually abandoned the program. Six toy shops will be planted in Southern California, with four in San Francisco, seven in Chicago and three in New York.
