Toys R Us Starts Selling Apple’s iPad 2

| News

Toy retailer Toys R Us began selling Apple’s iPad 2 over the weekend, expanding the number of potential locations where consumers can pick up the multimedia tablet device. The company isn’t carrying the iPad 2 in all of its stores, although it does have a Web page detailing where it should be available.

So far, Toys R Us is offering the iPad 2 in about 30 states, and only in select stores. The company is also selling cases and other accessories for the iPad 2.

Apple sells the iPad through its own stores and online, as well as at other retailers such as Best Buy, Target, Walmart and Radio Shack. Considering the tablet’s popularity, however, customers should still expect a wait since demand is still outstripping supply.

Got mine this weekend. Walked in and picked on up. No hassle. Spoke with the store manager; and he explained that each store was limited in the number they received to <10 units.

It worked out for me, as I got the model I wanted, but there wasn’t much of a choice at the store I was at. All they had was 32G WiFi model.

Costco stopped selling iPods, and iTunes Cards, but still sell iPod dock-speaker combinations.

Toys R Us closed a lot of their stores.

Yeah, it worked great for me.  I found the list of Toys R Us stores carrying iPad 2s at iPad2Tracker.com. I saw a store down the road listed, so I checked it out.  Fortunately, I was able to walk in and grab one without any trouble or waiting.
