Toys-R-Us Closing ALL Stores

If the rumors are true, Toys-R-Us will be closing all 800 US stores (not just the original 180 announced earlier).

So sad. It's the TRU bubble display that got my son and I into Heroscape. My wife saw it while Christmas shopping in 2004 and got the game for one of our sons.

LOL. Me too. I actually bought it to use the terrain for other things. What was I thinking?

Re: Toys-R-Us Closing ALL Stores?

I still have all my original boxes, opened of course, most still with the toys r us exclusive on them. That shows how often I would go As a kid and how much I bought. They had the best exclusives. The hell happened other than me growing up? Rhetorical question of course but seriously now.

Also bad news on top of bad news the founder of toys r us died today. Too much for his old heart to bear. Reminds me of when an older couple losses their significant other the other one isn't too far off either. Sad days indeed. Is all this buzz why the stock market is going down more often as well?

You are not going to find official Heroscape at Toys r us, they stopped having that merchandise many years ago. What you would find are the Magic: The Gathering counterparts. It's the closest thing you can find there, but they would be pretty cheap. Looks like Toys r us is having another round of discounts now.

Yeah I picked up Arena in Arkansas for 5$ for the first master set. I'm going again today in California this time and hopefully pick up a couple more

They are making a comeback, not sure what they will do now.

Not get my business, for one. You don't get to refuse to pay severance to your former employees, then re-open like nothing happened. I'm sick and tired of companies pulling this re-branding--and-everything's-ok-now-forget-the-shady-****-we-just-did crap.

They canceled the auction during October or something. I am not sure what they plan on doing now. They are not going to re-open this month, sometime late December or something.

Re: Toys-R-Us Closing ALL Stores

I really don't care how they are coming back. I do care that they think it's OK to try to make more profit without settling their debt to their employees. I do not plan on shopping there before that happens.
