Toys R Us Iberia GM linked to possible European revival

A post by Isaac Larian suggests Jean Charretteur is close to a take over of TRU France, Spain and Portugal

A social media post by Isaac Larian, the founder and CEO of MGA Entertainment who earlier this year spearheaded a campaign to save Toys R Us in the USA, suggests some of the toy retailer's vestigial European business could be save.

The post, seen on LinkedIn, said he'd heard news that Toys R Us Iberia GM Jean Charretteur is "close to do a management take over and save TRU in France, Spain and Porugal" [sic].

He hailed the "GREAT news" and shared his hoped that financiers would offer a favourable deal to avoid a situation similar to that in the US, where a number of bids for the business were ultimately rejected.
