I told my readers to “stay tuned for three more parts to this sad series” in the footnote to Part 1 of Toys R Us closing down, a tale of the retail apocalypse. It’s time to follow through with the first of those three parts about the demise of America’s, if not the world’s, largest toy store chain. This second installment features the most comprehensive single video on the topic, Bright Sun Films’ Abandoned – Toys R Us.
After much request, today I wanted to take a deeper look into the worlds most famous and iconic children’s toy store that became a staple of millions childhoods, only to crumble in 2018. Lets take a look at Toys R Us.
This is a much more complete and unbiased account than CNBC gave in Part 1, which is why I shared it.
Stay tuned for Part 3 featuring Company Man and Part 4 starring Retail Archeology.
