I checked out the Showcase website and found a large selection of Squishies, Yellies, LOL Surprise, Wrapples, Hairdorables,
Twisty Petz as well as racing sets, toy cars, unicorns, drones, electric scooters and more.

Canadian retailer, Showcase, has big plans for the United States. The company (which, among other things, sells toys), and its 108 stores, have been operating in Canada since 1996. Now it has plans for up to 1,000 stores in the US. Currently, they anticipate having 10 stores operating by January and 90 more by the end of 2019.

A Chain Store Age article, "Canadian retailer plans aggressive U.S. store growth", describes the mall based stores as a bit like Brookstone or Sharper Image but successful. Successful because their approach is different. Here is how the article puts it:

Showcase’s focus is on “moms with kids”, which translates well to the mall environment, rather than a focus on high-ticket male-focused products. And while these other retailers carried unique and novel curiosities, Showcase’s focus is on emerging trends that are in hot demand, with a speed that is second to none. This allows us to morph our assortment, pricing, planograming, and labor to adapt immediately to changes in consumer tastes and sentiments.
