Toys R Us liquidation sales start after a brief delay

The liquidation sales started Friday, and the company said it will offer shoppers "deep discounts and promotions".

The group now trying to save a remnant of the toy chain is hoping that with Toys R Us on the brink, it can reach its goal of raising $1 billion in funding.

MGA Entertainment's L.O.L. Surprise Tots. were the No. 1 best-selling toy a year ago, according to NPD Group Inc., a New York-based retail market research firm. That includes the Babies R Us at 300 Andover St.as well. The news organization noted that MGA relies on Toys R Us for around 20% of sales.

Inventory dwindles rapidly toward the end of a liquidation sale. In the United Kingdom, deal hunters can only save 15% on construction toys including Lego. However, among stores that started liquidating in February, diapers, baby wipes, and formula were not on sale.

Customers are now complaining that even in its sales, Toys R Us is not competing with rivals on price. It appears that ToysRUs stores can set the discounts individually.

All week long, debates have been raging on social media over whether or not the Bossier location would be included in the closures. To be able to find discounts on the widest selection of toys, you have to get to your local ToysRUs store this morning. Some shoppers complained on Friday that items were being discounted only by a measly 5%. However, one potential wrinkle is that some third-party sellers could grab up products and then sell them online for cheaper during the holidays when toy sales surge.

Most merchandise was 10% off. It's not going to be like going into a store and buying toys for kids.

When is the last day of the Toys "R" Us liquidation sale?

The founder of Toys R Us passed away on Thursday. In addition to the usual toys, stores are likely to sell off the shelves, furniture, and fixtures inside eachToys "R" Us and Babies "R" Us. Yes, until April 15th, according to the store.

Toys "R" Us said customers who have already placed online orders can expect to receive them.

If you've been holding on to a Toys R Us gift card or store credit, it's time to cash it in, advises Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry.

By 3:30 p.m. ET on Thursday, the campaign had attracted just over $12,000, mostly in denominations of less than $100.

The announcement last week that Toys R Us would be lost generated an enormous outpouring of nostalgia. But you may want to use them in the next week, because pickings will get slimmer and slimmer as the days go on. "I don't think so because they don't have the room".
