Petition seeks $1B to save Toys R Us
Company officials recently announced that Toys "R" Us will shutter its hundreds of stores across the nation, but before that happens, inventory will be sold off at deep discounts during liquidation sales.
The iconic retailer Toys "R" Us is one step closer to shutting down more than 700 of its USA stores leaving thousands of employees without a job. Last week, it announced it would sell or close all 735 of its USA stores.
The chain has its roots in Children's Bargain Town, the baby furniture store that Lazarus opened 1948 in his hometown of Washington, D.C. He began selling toys after a couple of years when customers began asking for them, and he quickly concluded that, in the baby-boom years, toys were a more lucrative business than furniture. A Toys R Us credit card can also be used, but shoppers won't get the discounts that typically come with it.
Items bought online or at non-closing stores can be returned until April 21.

"I'm very sad about it", said Sherry Miller of Peabody, referring to the impending closure, as she pushed her nearly 3-month-old daughter, Lexie, in a carriage outside Toys R Us. "If you have a really fascinating selection of merchandise that changes frequently, I'm going to go there". "Where are we going to find something for our new baby to play with?" she says. But the notices protect employees at stores a company decides to close before 60 days, while also allowing a company to extend notices if it chooses to keep a location open.
Online sales could start later.
Larian says he and the other investors, which he declined to name, believe that saving part of Toys R Us will be good for the toy industry, customers and workers.

Perhaps anticipating that his company had peaked, Lazarus sold Toys R Us that year to the Interstate department store chain for $7.5 million, remaining with the business as head of its toys division.
Toy stores have a critical advantage in another area - the last-minute rush.
Last September, Toys R Us was getting ready for the holidays, stocking up on toys it hadn't paid for yet.
