Tomorrow, Toys "R" Us will celebrate the opening of two stores in the Tampa-market.

One of the openings will take place in an entirely new store in Citrus Park, while the other showcases a complete renovation of the Brandon location.

Renovations include updated layouts for better shop-ability and new state-of-the-art interactive elements.

Each store will host its own special grand opening event for customers.

Stop by for a ribbon-cutting ceremony, a performance from a local high school marching band, product demonstrations, Toys for Tots donations, karaoke parties and more.

Saturday's celebration will also include the grand opening of the American Girl shop-in-shops.

Toys "R" Us is the first and only U.S.-based retailer to feature American Girl shops in select stores.

Experience the interactive store features, activities, costumed characters and giveaways throughout the weekend.

The parties start at 9 a.m. on Saturday at the Brandon Toys "R" Us located at 330 Brandon Town Center Blvd. as well as the Citrus Park store at 12845 Citrus Park Drive.
