A lot of people were bummed out when Toys R Us announced that they were closing. For many, it felt like a piece of their childhood had died. Well, you can turn that frown upside down because Toys R Us isn't dead.

The store is actually doing quite well in other parts of the world and has adapted by using social media platforms like Tik Tok to grow its reach. Now, Geoffrey, the Giraffe, has started bringing toys and games back to brick-and-mortar locations including several here in Minnesota.

We were all a bit shocked when Toys 'R' Us announced they were going to close down all 735 of its U.S. stores in March of 2018.

Liquidation sales started shortly after that announcement.

In Rochester, Toys R Us, located at 808 Apache Ln SW, had a huge blowout sale to get rid of everything. Items were discounted by 60-80% as the store tried to get rid of its inventory.
