*3000 workers now unemployed.
Naht cool.

Post your favourite memories of Toys R Us in here.
I liked it when they tried to change the jingle and then it came back because everyone was like “Nah, mate, It’s a classic leave it”
Was all down here after that.
Please, no Smyth’s chat

#3

think online retailers should pay additional tax to make up for the fact people browse real shops then go online


#4

Real shops are a bit like cash aren’t they these days? Not really much point.


#5

Depends


#6

Obviously coffee shops and sandwich shops and the like are still needed.


#7

Now where will the millions of geoffrey go? :disappointed:


#8

Last time I went a few weeks ago, there was no lego on the shelves.


#9

Naomi Klein’s follow up not proving popular.


#10

what about Babies R us?


#11

Had to Google that reference… nicely done.


#12

Woking TRU is/was a fucking institution! Need to send my wife in to pick through the bones.


#13

I remember as a kid when the Lincoln (UTI) branch opened and I was pure giddy with excitement. Always loved riding bicycles around there but tbf I do this in Decathers on the regs now.


#14

Fuck them.


#15

Good memories of begging my mum to take me to the Purley Way Toys R Us after trips to IKEA and walking around looking at toys we couldn’t afford. Always had good video game demo units.


#16

First time I ever used the internet was at a Toys R Us. GBOL


#17

Probably the single most iconic thing in Woking


#18

Yeah, fuck Weller, fuck HG Wells… it’s all about Geoffrey.


#19

remember never being taken there despite always being desperate to go, and then when i finally went in in my 20s to get something for some relative having a baby and it was pure hell (obviously). I’ve got nothing else on file about ToyRUs I’m afraid


#20

Fuck them.
