WYOMISSING, Pa. - The space once occupied by Berks County's lone Toys R Us store is back in business.

Raymour & Flanigan was joined Friday by the Greater Reading Chamber Alliance in cutting the ribbon on its new store in the Woodmill Commons shopping center on Woodland Road in Wyomissing.

Raymour & Flanigan, headquartered in Liverpool, New York, also has a store on Route 61 in Ontelaunee Township.

The Toys R Us store and a nearby Babies R Us outlet were among hundreds across the country that closed in the spring of 2018.

Plans are in the works to tear down the former Babies R Us store in the Broadcasting Square shopping center in Spring Township and fill its space with a stand-alone Panera Bread and other buildings.
