My local Toys R Us moved their discounts from 10-30% to 20-40% off. I got a nice haul today including the 35th anniversary Care Bear for 40% off, the new Shimmery Celestia and Cadence brushables, as well as some Pokemon and Calico critter toys! :lol:

Still so sad to see it close...like it's magical to go in there and touch and play with the toys before you buy them! It's just not the same online..

Something to watch for—Although our local stores are still at 20%, one of them ran a "today only, this store only" 10% off your total purchase, so the effective discount was 28%, negating the sales tax. Every little bit and all that.
Still not a lot of different things, mostly movie related stock. They did have a huge stack of the Canterlot castle sets in an aisle, no special discount however.

The Stores by me  ,claimed to be 20 % off on things ,but their prices were jacked up and then "discounted"
this is nothing new with TRU  , I'm glad they are going away , deceptive "sales" were one of their many toxic practices

I've seen the grocery store I work at pull the same stunt. They often put it on sale with a membership card while the non-member price goes up, and at least once recently they lowered the non-member price/non-sale price after the sale.

I don't think the loss of TRU is a good thing at all. Without a dedicated toy store companies will have to scale back their offerings since Walmart and Target only have a few aisles for toys.

I'll be glad to see small stores get more business. Used to only get Calico Critters at specialty stores. Most of mine are from pre-TRU. I know of 3 small toy stores within half an hour of me and with any luck they'll flourish, assuming they're all still open. One is in my county but the vintage toy store said they're the only dedicated toy store in the county besides TRU.

This makes me sad to see. Even if you didn't like the way they did sales, this is a big loss for families across the world. Not just the workers for TRU but it'll trickle down to other companies as well.

In my experience the small stores are great for specialty lines like Calico Critters, Lottie, and wooden toys but absolutely horrible for mainstream toys like MLP. Their selection for those was even worse than Walmart or Target and their prices were even higher than TRU's regular prices.
