Toys R Us to reportedly open new stores later this year

Defunct children’s retail chain Toys R Us will open new stores later this year, according to reports. The company liquidated its assets last year after entering bankruptcy in September 2017. According the Bloomberg, the retailer will come back with roughly six smaller stores and an e-commerce site this year.

Good for them since the last group that owned Toys-R-Us bleed them dry supporting their other brands... well that and having a disastrous contract with Disney for Star Wars toys.

Is this a game? Are they playing with us? Do they think we're some kind of a toy? So childish of them.

This isn't much of a surprise since the reason why for this is because people in the U.S. are having less children and getting married later on in life.

They are done. Amazon has taken over and it is a very scary thing. Ever wondered why Amazon losses money to corner all the world's industries? You think once that fully happens they won't jack up pricing as the sole provider? You are fooling yourselves.

Yes, Amazon is a thing. So is the unadulterated joy in a young child when you take them to a (to them) massive store of... toys, stuff they like. And yes, Toys R Us does video games too, its where my original NES console was bought. I have fond memories of going in there as a kid. Years later, grown up, I went into my local toys r us, and it seemed sooo much smaller. Part of me thought what was I worked up about... then the inner kid said shut up, lets play with all these. Sure, buy most of the stuff from amazon, get your savings... but tey to take your kid to an actual toystore if you can, even if for just one thing.... Its not for you, its not going to be part of your growing up experience... its the kids. Give them.one of those silly choldish memories that they will remember fondly when they are as old and cynical as we are.

I guess Jeffery sold enough tricks to get the company out of debt.
