    Toys 'R Us Closing All Stores

    So this was confirmed by Toys 'R Us last week and only came to my attention today via youtube. To get to the point, all US and UK stores will be closing at a TBA point in time this year with a liquidation sale before hand.

    I wanna say that while I've never been to TrU, I feel like something that has been part of pop culture and a long running store chain closing down is saddening to me.

    Anyway, I just thought I'd bring that to everyone's attention and see how everyone feels about this.

    I usually go to three different Toys R Us stores a week. So this sucks, though I don't buy things there that often. I usually bought Lego, and "My Little Pony" stuff.

    Woo hoo, look at the tektites dance!

    I remember when their walls were lined with slips(effectively vouchers) for NES games.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! TRU was my go-to place for toys! OK, so many would say I'm too old for toys, but on the other hand, are you ever really too old? I'm really going to miss the place

    So 2 updates!

    First, the clearance sale starts TODAY. So now might be your chance to get some neat stuff on sale (I snagged 3 Animal Crossing amiibo and Dragon Quest Builders for Switch; though the game wasn't on sale I just wanted it and my local wal-mart hasn't carried it since it launched last month so they don't get my money those lazy jerkfaces!)

    Second, the founder of Toys R' Us died yesterday, a week after the announcment of the closure. So the closing really is final as the stores themselves and the founder are both leaving us.

    This should so be in GB Man... I could rant about this for hours on end.
    I mean where else can I get my toys at
    I mean a girl's got to have some solo time and lesbians definitely need them. @VEL would definitely agree with me here.

    I got alot of My Little Pony toys at Toys R Us. I need to lay on my bed naked with ponies covering up my naughty bits so I can take a pic and post it here.

    I had forgotten about the game slips. Good times.

    My two little girls loved going there to play with all of the toys, while simultaneously driving me nuts.
