Amazon said to be weighing up Toys R Us store buys

BBB Bureau Briefs: Gift Cards & Bankruptcy - Newschannel 6 Now | Wichita Falls, TX

Senator Charles Schumer is calling on federal regulators to let customers redeem unspent "Toys R' Us" gift cards before the one time retail giant closes its USA stores.

We're learning more about Toys "R" Us closing stores.

Amazon launched Amazon Go, cashier-free brick-and-mortar stores, in January, and it purchased Whole Foods previous year.

Amazon gained about 450 stores with the surprise take-over of Wholefoods past year. The stores would reportedly be used to showcase its Echo line of devices.

Toys "R" Us filed for bankruptcy earlier this year and announced it will be closing all of its locations by April 15. In 2015, Bloomberg notes, Amazon considered buying some closed down Radio Shack locations, but ultimately opted against doing so.

Toys R Us was ahead of its time.

Operating under the assumption that the majority of parents will continue to buy toys for birthdays and holidays, Lennett estimates that the organic decline for the total USA toy industry will be in the low single digits. Its Canadian unit is up for sale, along with its operations around the world.

While there are multiple causes to blame for Toys "R" Us' problems, the company revealed that they think the problems lie with lack of one important category of customer.

"We have a $14-$15m payment due that hasn't been paid", Isaac Larian, chief executive of Bratz dolls maker MGA Entertainment, said.

Legacy Toys has stores in Ely and at Duluth's Miller Hill Mall, and they just opened a new store in Fargo.
