Toys R Us has posted international sales of $965m for its second quarter ending July 31, 2010 – a drop of $26m year-on-year.
The retailer said in a statement: “Comparable store net sales grew 0.6 per cent in the US and declined 3.2 per cent in the international segment, as increases in most product categories were offset by a decline in video games.”
In the US gross profit reached $57m, down from $79m the year before. However net sales rose from $1.576bn to $1.6bn.
Toys R Us also announced it will open 600 temporary outlets in the US in the run up to Christmas.
