It’s a sad day for many generations of “Toys R Us Kids”. Six months after filing for bankruptcy in the US (and one month after filing in the UK), Toys R Us announced will be closing all 900 stores across the United States and the UK.
Toys R Us is one of, if not the largest single retailer for yoyo brands like Duncan, YoYoFactory, and Yomega so this is going to be a huge hit for those companies. Gift cards will be honored in the US for the next 30 days, and we expected liquidation pricing to go into effect soon. It will be a good time to pick up plenty of great yoyos for cheap for your local club, but that’s about the only silver lining we can find here.
