A second retail location will open in Houston on Dec. 1, and other stores will open over the next year, reported.

The stores' openings come 17 months after all Toys R Us stores closed, USA Today reported.

Toys R Us has started a resurgence of sorts over the past few weeks with the opening of Toys R Us Adventure locations in Chicago and Atlanta and the relaunch of the company's website.

It also has started a partnership with Target, reported.

The company filed for bankruptcy in 2017, reported.
