Toys ‘R’ Us writes heartwarming goodbye as it closes for good

The bankrupt toy company announced that it would be shutting down all US locations in March

The toy store chain known for its sprawling stores, brightly colored logo and Geoffrey the Giraffe mascot will be closing its last us stores Friday.

The toy store chain announced in March they would be closing down and the few remaining stores are closing for good this week.

Since Wednesday, a photo taken by a Toys "R" Us employee of Geoffrey the Giraffe carrying a suitcase in what appeared to be an empty Toys "R" Us store has gone viral on Facebook, echoed with thousands of sentimental comments. The image has been shared more than 300,000 times and has left many online feeling nostalgic and heartbroken.

It is the first time since 1938 that a Germany or West Germany side has not progressed beyond the first section of the tournament. Now, we seem to be faced with a similar dilemma with teams that play later can engineer their performance to chart their course.

By the 80s and early 90s, Toys R Us dominated the toy-store business and its jingle, "I'm a Toys R Us kid" became an anthem for children across the country.

Late a year ago, Toys R Us filed for bankruptcy.

The liquidation of the largest USA toy retailer is a blow to hundreds of toy makers that sold products at the chain, including Barbie maker Mattel Inc, board game company Hasbro Inc and other large vendors such as Lego.

But we want to qualify, we're not here to watch him play", explained the coach. "I think we have a manager who is very tough". He has now scored Nigeria's last four goals at the World Cup.

"The company's operations outside of the US and Canada, including its operations in Europe and Australia and its approximately 255 licensed stores and joint venture partnership in Asia, which are separate entities, are not part of the Chapter 11 filing", a spokesperson said, according to Newsweek.

Many kids grew up watching Geoffrey the Giraffe in TV commercials. This graduate school of pro wrestling is home to people who will be lighting up marquees for years to come, but now the doors are open to another person in need of a home.
