I woke up in a place where #ToysRUs no longer exists. I’m going back to bed.— Will Friedle (@willfriedle) March 15, 2018
I remember as a kid, a Toys R Us trip was the equivalent of going to a Chuck E Cheese or Disneyland.. good childhood memories. Going to miss you #ToysRUs— Mia Yim (@MiaYim) March 15, 2018
The time has finally come for Toys R Us kids to grow up. The toy store chain which was loved by generations of kids for 70 years is closing all of its 735 U.S. stores.
The company had originally planned to keep 400 stores open but ultimately didn't have enough cash to keep them operational. The company filed for bankruptcy late last year and hoped it would be helped by strong holiday sales, but that never happened. The downfall, mostly due to online shopping with other vendors. If you happen to have a Toys R Us gift card, use them fast. The chain says it will honor them for 30 days. (USA Today)
