Sad but it is what it is. I can remember going to toys r us when I was a kid and looking around but never actually buying anything.
Maybe that was because we were poor but it always worked out that you could get the same stuff at Walmart for less. Not to mention k Mart.
Still sad to see retail dying like this.

I'd rather be homeless than work at toys r' us
I used to work at Toys R Us. The most humiliating part was the end of the night (I actually did remodels of TrU) they would search you to make sure no product was leaving the store.
I understood why they did it, but it felt horrible at the time.
Drove by Babies R Us today and the entire store is 50% off.
This got me excited, so I immediately drove to Toys R Us. They have not begun to liquidate at my store yet. It did get me to go into the store though, and I bought some Amiibo that haven't been on shelves for a while. Apparently they are cleaning out the back room and putting whatever they can on display.
I could've sworn they closed down years ago.
i know that feel. poor too, only went to toys r us like twice in my life
The stores near me have had the 30% off signs up for a month now. I haven't been in to check and see how empty the shelves are. Might check it out. It's a shame really, because Toys R Us is the only box store you could still get a bucket of army men for cheap. They also have awesome foam dart guns from companies other than NERF. Bought a gun from there that fired 40 darts without needing batteries. It was great.
Ha, looks like Toys R Us rejected his offer. Wooo!
Swung by mine today, almost bought a 28" tall barbie to rub my dick on. Or an 12" DC Super Hero Girls doll, or a Monster High doll.
My store has a %40 Off Everything sign on the front doors, with "some exceptions apply".
Go inside and everything is marked with 5% or 10% off stickers.
Worst capitalist liquidation ever.
