A final good-bye: Toys R Us closes its doors forever

Rene Johnpiere the woman who took the viral also posted several other images including the one above that reads'I guess everyone has grown up. There's no more Toys

Another poster has a letter from Geoffrey that reads: 'One day, all of us will get separated from each other.

Meanwhile, a picture posted Wednesday of the chain's mascot, Geoffrey the Giraffe, with his luggage packed up and ready to go quickly went viral, garnering almost 300,000 shares by Friday morning.

In the wake of this historic retail event, a photo of the store's mascot, Geoffrey the Giraffe, standing in an empty store with a suitcase, is going viral.

The nationwide shutdown of Toys "R" Us has left a $11 billion market void.

Madelyn Garcia, who has worked at Toys R Us for 30 years and became a manager at the Boynton Beach store in September, told The Palm Beach Post that the Toys R Us team is a "family" and therefore should be compensated properly.

The company announced earlier this year that all stores would close and had been slashing prices leading up to the final closing.

Many kids grew up watching Geoffrey the Giraffe in TV commercials.

Will the Toys R Us name and mascot disappear forever? Whether this leads to a relaunched store is anyone's guess, but the brand as a whole isn't dead regardless, as the division of Toys "R" Us in Canada is still open for business.

Jacob Rabon IV tweeted two of the photos with the caption: 'I can't believe childhood is cancelled'.

'One day, our children will see our pictures and ask: "Who are these people?"

Troubles for Toys R Us have also shaken big toy makers like Mattel and Hasbro.

Are you saddened by the loss of the beloved toy store?
