Late last year Toys "R" Us declared bankruptcy. While the business had hoped to reorganize, this fell through and in March of 2018 they declared they would be liquidating their United States based businesses. In today's article, I share my thoughts on the reasons for the closings as well as my personal feelings on the matter. Please read my article then visit Ben's World of Transformers on Facebook to discuss the topic!
