The Toys "R" Us store in Evansville, Indiana closed for good in 2018. Since then, the building has been a Spirit Halloween store and a vendor mall. The building is coming back to life, but not for fans of retail shopping.

 Peek at the Construction

Once I noticed that there was some activity at the former Toys "R" Us building I had to get a closer look. Would toys be coming back? Maybe a Dave & Busters that we keep asking for? Well as it turns out, the new tenant is none of those things.

 Caliber Collision - COMING SOON 


The photos that I took make more sense now. They were creating bay areas for vehicles, not shopping areas as I had hoped. I mean, this is a pretty big space, so Caliber can work on multiple cars at once. That is great, but I was really hoping for something a little more fun.

We are here to provide exceptional service, removing the hassle and stress of car care. That means you can rest easy knowing your car is in the hands of our skilled technicians whose training goes above and beyond industry standards. Caliber will not only get you safely back on the road but back to what matters most.

Not New to Evansville

Caliber recently celebrated 1,600 locations across the country. There will soon be two locations in Evansville one in Newburgh and one in Owensboro.
