Toys R Us to Close All 800 of Its U.S. Stores

Abha Bhattarai, reporting for The Washington Post:

Toy store chain Toys R Us is planning to sell or close all 800 of its U.S. stores, affecting as many as 33,000 jobs as the company winds down its operations after six decades, according to a source familiar with the matter.

Matt Haughey, on Twitter:

I distinctly remember the day when I was about 7 years old and I decided what I most looked forward to upon becoming an adult was being able to drive to Toys R Us anytime I wanted to so I could play with toys on the shelves.

Same feeling here.
