I wonder though, that even if they restart Toys R Us, won’t the same problems which caused issues for the company still be there?
Failed once, why try again?
Smaller stores. Same cheap junk from china
Toyz Wuz Us, for the hood, maybe? You know, fill all those “toy deserts” in urban America where kids are more than 5 miles from a Barbie or Gameboy?
I never studied the failure of Toys-R-Us, but I think there might be some room for success in this market because children represent a different (and highly impulsive) market (i.e., children like to hold a product in their grubby little paws and want immediate gratification...at least that is my experience as a child with grubby little paws).
Toys R Us was fun once upon a time, but it spiraled down into just another junk store. They should bring back Zany Brainy if they’re looking for a worthy project.
After the Supreme Court ruling on online sales, I was hoping Toys R Us would re-think their decision.
It’s certainly not too late. Our store is still having their OUT OF BUSINESS sale.
All those unsold Star Wars toys didn’t help either!
When a company fails, most of the blame is due to poor management. One shining example is railroading. The railroads here in the east were total losers for decades; then along came NORFOLK SOUTHERN, and suddenly railroading is profitable again. And I say it’s all thanks to wise management.
I hope he succeed...
