Toys R Us Splitting From Amazon This July
July 1st, the Toys "R" Us website will be no longer affiliated with e-tailer giant Amazon.com.
Since 2000, Amazon.com has been handling the ToysRUs.com website orders and product fulfillment, but after a court decision last March allowed TRU to separate themselves from Amazon, the toy giant has plans to "seemlessly transition" their ToysRUs.com website to a new platform for the company's online business on July 1st of this year.
The new Toys "R" Us website will use services from company GSI Commerce - as TRU's press release puts it, "a leading provider of e-commerce solutions" - for customer service and site technology, and order fulfillment services will be handled by Exel - "a leading North American contract logistics provider". How this transition is to affect current preorders, especially those of TRU-exclusive sets, is not yet known.
