The last 700 stores Toys R Us stores in the U.S. were trying to sell off as much of their remaining stock as possible on Friday before closing forever. A lot of it was 80% or 90% off.
But one location in Raleigh, North Carolina didn't have to worry. Because an anonymous person wrote them a check for a million dollars and bought up all of their leftover toys, so they could give them away.
The employees at the store spent all day Friday boxing stuff up and shipping it out. And they won't reveal who the person was.
But it sounds like it could be an early Secret Santa thing. And whoever did it might be planning to hand out the toys around the holidays.
meanwhile the stores' closing has hit the internet hard:
This literally felt like a kick to the heart. I got my first few bikes here. Boardgames. Whatever Lego set we could afford. Even some video games. It sucks to know Toys R Us was actually doing ok, but a corporate company decided to drain its funds and close it. I'll miss it. 💜 pic.twitter.com/wfAX2H5Pk9— Thomas Sanders (@ThomasSanders) July 1, 2018
