Toys R Us demise

Post by Mawsey »

Toys R Us have gone into administration today.
Up to 3,000 jobs are at risk now.
I reckon this has happened since many people are all shopping online nowadays.
Either that or people are not buying kids toys :shock:

The internet killed off a lot of the businesses. They just have to adapt to the conditions but it looks like Toys R Us didn't do much on the internet.
