This is kinda sad. I used to love going there as a kid. But with Amazon getting more and more popular, it makes sense.

 

But now where are 7-year-olds going to buy Ouija boards? :'(

This isn’t good.... Amazon outcompeting traditional retail stores is terrifying. It’s setting them up to be a major monopoly.

 

Also, how would a kid figure out what toy they want if they can’t go and see it first? :rip:

I mean people said the same about Wal-Mart overtaking the “mom and pop” brick and mortar stores. The retail industry is just experiencing a shift, and it will naturally adjust with time.

This is sad, I have so many childhood memories. My family used to live in front of a Toys R Us and I would always go there with my dad to look at the toys. :'(

 

I feel sorry for the workers, but I'm lowkey excited about the sales.

One of the Toys 'R' Us is already preparing to shut down near me.  :'(

 

As a kid I think I went to this store only a few times because how expensive everything was.   But the times I did go it was Heaven on Earth.  :alexz3:

Amazon is taking over the world.  It's sad and scary at the same time. :sad:

Their own fault. They don’t do much to attract customers let alone compete with other retailers.

I went there and they had a Rowlet plush that was like $90 bucks and it was $50 online. No wonder they're going out of a business
