Wow.  I wonder if it would be worth making a last visit.  Daughter and I moved on to more expensive toys years ago, but I'm still sad they're going.

Visited ours about ten days ago and it definitely felt picked over.

"That sounded stupid, didn't it?"—Kolzig, to the same reporter a few seconds later.

I never shopped there. My parents always shopped at Sears or JCPenney for toys.

^ When a group of investors plucks a trademark from a pile of rubble that once was a business, and the investors then apply that trademark to a new business having no connection to the original, I’d hardly call that a “revival” or a “comeback”.

Yeah, I read this story and immediately thought of the Circuit City “revival” that has yet to go anywhere.

Some big retailer will sell a few "Toys R Us"-branded toys to milk out a little nostalgia from the parents.

Hey, at least there's nostalgia to be milked.  Who in the hell is nostalgic for Circuit City?
