Friday, February 27, 2004
McFarlane Toys has just been named one of the 2003 Vendors of the Year from Toys 'R Us, one of the world's largest toy retailers. TRU gives these awards based on item category and size of manufacturer. McFarlane Toys won the award for small-size manufacturer, action figures.
"This is a very special award for us to win," said Rick Jackson, a member of the McFarlane Toys sales staff who manages the Toys 'R Us account.
The sales department worked very hard with the TRU staff in 2003 and grew that portion of our business significantly. This is not only good for McFarlane Toys and for Toys 'R Us, but for consumers, too, who should be better able to find our products at retail.
Also, be on the lookout for a new look for the McFarlane Toys section in certain TRU stores beginning Fall 2004.
