Nintendo Switch Is Back In Stock At Toys "R" Us

Nintendo Switch is back in stock at Toys “R” Us according to a tweet sent out by retailer yesterday morning. As you would expect, quantities will be limited from store-to-store, so you might want to call and check with your local Toys “R” Us before venturing out to the store itself and save yourself the time/gas money if they don’t have any in stock. In my personal experience, I saw 1 or 2 Gray Switch systems in stock at my local Best Buy a week or two ago, so that might be an option as well.
