Generous fee-based remuneration with significant success-based bonus

Gordon Brothers has provided Toys “R” Us with comprehensive solutions throughout periods of change for the firm over the course of our 20 year partnership. Our services have ranged from store expansion strategies, operational support, advisory services and inventory disposition.

In our current capacity as master broker, Gordon Brothers has supported Toys “R” Us’ expansion, helping plan new prototype store locations by providing targeted expertise in key markets. We have simultaneously facilitated transition of old locations out of the company’s portfolio by undertaking lease restructurings and dispositions of fee-owned and leased properties. We also provide Brokers Opinion of Value (BOV) when needed.

At other points of transition for the company, we provided due diligence and advisement on operations, market position and merchandise/pricing strategies to support previous M&A activity. We also helped the company refocus on its core business when it made the strategic decision to wind-down its Kids “R” Us concept, undertaking the total inventory and real estate disposition. 
Over the years, we have maintained a close partnership with the company to help Toys “R” Us scale for growth, maximize its asset portfolio and execute its strategic objectives.
