I have such fond memories of Toys R Us. I know, I know, it was way overpriced, but for selection it was the best app store around. They had literally EVERYTHING. They even sold the ultra-rare SEGA System Sports Paddle which was required for Great Ice Hockey. Man, that game was great.

Yeah I have fond memories of Toys R Us. From when I went there yesterday.

Also other retailers. If I need a common toy for a kid right now, Tarzhey will have it, and I'll know which aisle it's in because the website tells me. And I can get other stuff I need while there.

One time in the 90s, dad and dad's second wife promised me, my brother, and her kids each a Star Wars figure if we did some yard work. I wanted Boba Fett, because I already had Leia. So they drove us to three different Toys Я Us stores to find one.

Stop calling them “apps” and stop posting a single image from a classified ad to back up your insane reasoning. You are bad for this board.

Mom had to divorce him because he's unbearable to be around. He divorced second wife when her infidelity was discovered. I don't blame her. One time I heard him fucking his third and current wife on their squeaky California king bed down the hall, and it sounded very short and boring. Third dated for a bit before he met second but they eventually got back together and married.

He sounds like a total fuckup and needs to keep his women in line

They have plans to come back as Tru Kids with resized stores.
I'll still miss other places where I played on the store displays as a kid such as Circuit City where I played the Tekken 2 and MGS demo and in Sears where I saw the FF7 trailer being exhibited.

A game which lets you play as one?

Yeah it was a great store.. So many people miss the past and its easy to understand why...

People dont really know what theyre doing and it leads to a harsh tyranical society..

I have this odd feeling that the economy and public infrastructure (like roads and maintanance of any kind) is going to take a steep drop off in the near future (like 2-3 years).. it looks nice now but all over the country it will take a sudden steep decline.. I dont think the civilization will ever get better, just worse..

It comes from tradition.. all these people merely cling to tradition.. what they were given from their anscestors and their past.. nobody stops amongst all this programming and sees things anew or asks if there is another way... they just keep going adhereing to their programming... These people could easily destroy the earth and cause mass extinction.. Look at china.. I mean were already very close to extinction level recklessness and nobody cares because its too difficult to think outside the programming.

If people dont do that then the world will invariably turn into a 3rd world style slum with tin shanties and garbage everywhere. It will never get better, just be on some downward path of whatever type.

This person has attempted to make random shit into memes for a year or so now. Threads like this have no purpose and should be removed.

Actually, it was Wal-Mart's lower prices for the same products, a failure to adapt to a shifting market, and external investors dumping their debt onto a struggling company that did them in. But keep believing in that Amazon boogeyman.

Wal-mart and Target are now facing similar challenges to keep up thanks to Amazon, and TRU survived long enough for Amazon to have a real and enormous impact on their business as well.
