Petition seeks $1B to save Toys R Us

She says for years, her specialty store has always played a back seat to Toys R' Us, but now that the mega-store is closing, she can show off everything her store has to offer.

Larian and "various associates" chipped in $200 million for the campaign, leaving the other $800 million to customers.

They also created the hashtag #SaveToysRUs on social media.

Toys "R" Us bankruptcy proceedings could spell bigger financial troubles for the municipalities that house their stores, including the town of Amherst, which stands to lose two locations.

The company said last week it's trying to bundle its Canadian business with about 200 US stores and find a buyer.

Toys R Us is struggling internationally, except in Asia. "I mean, I found a bunch of toys, but still it's sad to see it go".

Friday marked the beginning of the end for Toys R' Us, a place you've likely taken your kids shopping, or even have fond memories from when you were young.

Larian's bid to buy Toys "R" Us does not involve his company, he said. "You don't know who Geoffrey is?" said Jeffrey Fish, a Toys "R" Us shopper. "It's not groceries and all that", Heitmann said. "I am more than 85 percent to 90 percent sure I can get that funded".

Sen. Paul smacks at budget deal again, this time via tweets
First one I want to talk about, this bill will clarify a policy, making it clear that the CDC can actually research gun violence . Congress passed five continuing resolutions to keep the government funded while Republicans and Democrats negotiated priorities.

Toys R Us declined to comment on Larian's bids.

The iconic toy giant kicked off its liquidation sale after announcing it will shut or sell all of its 735 stores. That brand accounts for 25 percent of MGA total sales, and Larian says only Toys R Us really had enough room to display the cars.

The news that Toys R Us is going out of business hit an entire generation of consumers and collectors like a punch in the gut.

Another wrote: "Wow, we can try to save a toy store but can't raise money to protect our schools better". It sought bankruptcy protection in the U.S. and Canada previous year. It operates more than 700 stores outside the United States. His first job: washing dishes at a Lawndale restaurant.

In January 2004, a Season 15 episode of The Simpsons saw a similar outcome for the toy store.

Michael Goldstein, the CEO who followed Lazarus, spoke to CNN.

From the first Toys "R" Us outlet, opened in 1957 in the Maryland suburbs near his hometown of Washington, Lazarus stuck to a winning formula of high volume, discounted prices and cookie-cutter predictability. He began selling toys after a couple of years when customers began asking for them, and he quickly concluded that, in the baby-boom years, toys were a more lucrative business than furniture. Delighted manufacturers ran proposed products by his company before committing to wide-scale production, according to a 1986 article in Atlantic Monthly magazine, which called Lazarus "the person most responsible for loosening Santa's grip on the toy business".
