Today Is the Day Every Last Toys R Us Store Closes

The bankrupt toy company announced that it would be shutting down all US locations in March

Toys 'R Us filed for bankruptcy in September 2017 and began closing its 735 USA stores in March, with the last and final round of the brick and mortar locations officially closing doors this week.

Another poster has a letter from Geoffrey that reads: 'One day, all of us will get separated from each other.

And thanks to this anonymous buyer, countless children from a newer, younger generation will derive joy from Toys R Us toys one last time, just like so many kids that came before them.

The photo shows Geoffrey The Giraffe saying goodbye in an empty Toys "R" Us store, with a suitcase in hand.

As the last of the US stores close, more than 30,000 workers will be looking for work. We will miss our conversations of everything, and nothing, and the dreams we had. We do live in a sad day and it was a crushing blow to the inner child in millions of people.

"I love, I mean, Babies R Us and Toys R Us".

Jacob Rabon IV tweeted two of the photos with the caption: 'I can't believe childhood is cancelled'. At least Geoffrey has some career options in case he wants to become a Superstar.

Geoffrey has acted as the chain's logo and "spokesanimal" for the past 70 years. There was also the heavy debt load Toys R Us had to bear after the company was purchased by private-equity firms Bain Capital and KKR & Co.in a $6.6 billion leveraged buyout in 2005.

Party City said on Monday it will open about 50 pop-up toy stores this year along with its Halloween City pop-up shops in locations that present "attractive leasing opportunities", CEO James Harrison said.
