    I had seen this, I'm very curious who would buy them if they declare bankruptcy.

    But not closing any stores. And even if they did close stores we would need to wait for a 30% off sale before the prices would even be closer to what they should be.

    You're not wrong at all. That's the sad part.

    Ya, I reported on this on my Instagram page, it appears that the managers have been instructed to not tell employees anything. I've also heard that employees will not be receiving severance while the top executives will be receiving bonuses :problem:

    That's what happens when you live in a plutocracy. You rob $100 from a bank, you go to jail for years. Thousands of people working at banks steal millions and billions from us, not a single person goes to trial. It's what happens when bribery became legal in the late 70s. People think it's all Trump's fault, but Obama made the Bush tax cuts for the rich permanent, gave us a health care system that benefits corporations over people, didn't help Flint get clean water, expanded oil pipelines so oil companies can make billions while it cost taxpayers billions to clean up their spills.

    But God bless America! We are number one... at letting people die for no reason or mass murdering them for no reason!!! Woohoo!

    Toys R Us Canada carries on business as usual amid reports of U.S. liquidation

    I wouldn't mind some sales, but I don't want Toys "R" Us Canada to go away.
    They are the most consistent store for sales.
