Toys R Us closed its remaining stores in the US yesterday. The company not only did that, but also left the following message on its website.
As I wrote a few months ago, I have many memories of going to my nearest store when I was a child. I hope to ALWAYS remember those Saturdays when my sister and I dragged our aunt there when we had to stay with her on the weekends when my father was playing rugby and my mother was working.
It has been well over thirty years since those visits, but - whenever I saw the Toys R Us logo (it was slightly different back in the 80s, though!) - I would always think of my aunt.
It's the first of many memories I have of Toys R Us...
