Old Time Pottery is planning to open its first Pensacola-area store in the former Toys “R” Us storefront at 5065 North 9th Avenue. The 46,000 square foot building has been vacant since the toy retailer moved to new facilities on Davis Highway in 2013.
Old Time Pottery’s corporate office did not respond to a request for comment. Broker Todd Synder said the store is expected to open in the spring of 2016.
Headquartered in Murfreesboro, TN, Old Time Pottery is a leading discount retailer of home furnishings with stores in 10 states throughout the Southeast and Midwest regions of the country. Currently, the nearest stores to Pensacola are located in Gulf Shores and Destin.
