Another Pop-Up Store Comes to the Spectrum

DSCN4605I know, it’s starting to sound like the beginning of a joke, but … as I was walking through the Irvine Spectrum Center the other day I saw a sign for a Toys R Us Holiday Express store.

Not sure when it’s expected to open, but as you can see in the photo, they are already stocking the store with merchandise. The store is located in the aisle between Nordstrom and Target. It’s located in the spot that has been occupied by a million different things and I don’t remember any of them.

It’s a 100 degrees outside, football season hasn’t officially begun, Halloween is still eight weeks away and we’re already being reminded that Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Festivus – or whatever it is you celebrate or don’t celebrate – is not about being spiritual, but about who gets the most crap. This is just the beginning of “the airing of the grievances.”

P.S. sorry for the poor photo i.e. huge shadow. Unfortunately, I can’t control the turning of the Earth.

    I’ve never even heard of a “Holiday Express”. I don’t ever step into toy stores during the holidays. Ever.

    I too would like to report a new pop-up store at the strip mall in Barstow. This one happens to be a pop-up store that sells pop-up books. How ironic!!! Their selection is second to none. Pop-up books galore! I will be servicing all my pop-up book needs from them. Cheers!!!
