Earlier this week the Brooklyn Paper wrote that Toys “R” Us would be opening a seasonal store in the old Sid’s Hardware space on Jay Street. (We wrote up that news, when it was still a rumor, a month ago.) Now it’s looking like that may not be the only pop-up store the toy giant has planned for Brooklyn. Based on a tip, we snapped these photos yesterday evening of two stores currently undergoing transformationâ€”the old Blockbuster video on Flatbush (pictured left) and the old Jeans Express store (right) on 11th Street and 5th Avenue. Looks like they’ll be here just in time for holiday shoppers.
