Piedmont shoppers prepare for Toys 'R' Us liquidation sales

Petition seeks $1B to save Toys R Us

Last September, Toys R Us was getting ready for the holidays, stocking up on toys it hadn't paid for yet.

A GoFundMe campaign has been launched to crowdfund this investment idea. #SaveToysRUs became a trend on social media.

Larian is pouring $100 million into the buyout bid and has raised another $100 million from investors, including real estate developer Joseph Moinian. The company's liquidation sales started Friday and customers were eager to cash in on the deals.

Toys R Us is finally starting its going-out-of-business sales. Take a good look at packages to see if they've been opened already. All of the toy vendors, including MGA, made a lot of money selling to Toys "R" Us.

Toys R Us shoppers will have until April 21 to use their remaining gift cards at stores or online.

Before you head to one of almost half a dozen Orlando-area stores, here's everything you need to know about the liquidation sales. You can find the addresses and sizes of each of the stores in the list. The popular toy chain filed for liquidation late last week, triggering the likely closure or sale of all their USA stores.

What's more, Toys "R" Us stores are known for high list prices, so their discounts could be less meaningful than retailers with less inflated regular prices. For one thing, Larian would be free of the $5 billion in debt that hampered the current owner of Toys R Us. The effort was first reported by The Associated Press, and before that Larian had hinted to Forbes that he might try to acquire some or all of the Toys R Us outlets due to close.

Diapers were sold at deep discounts, encouraging parents to spend their savings on toys. "Even though they are small now, we have memories for the future as far as the pictures go", said Ashmore.

Toys "R" Us announced a week ago that it was liquidating its United States operations - shutting down all 735 stores in a move that could slash 33,000 jobs, a victim of the online retail boom. Instead, some stores offered sales while many others did not, frustrating consumers like Janine Gonzalez of Palm City, Florida. The troubled toy retailer released the details about the liquidation sale in a store closing FAQ online.

Toys R Us had hoped to reorganize under the bankruptcy laws but opted to liquidate after what Toys R Us Chief Executive David Brandon called a "devastating" holiday shopping season past year.
