    While it sucks for a toy store to go out of business, I really hated how their prices were always a few dollars higher than everyone else. It was even worse when they had exclusives. You never knew if they were actually going to carry... they're OWN EXCLUSIVES.

    Sad, though...

    Like Walmart and DCUC!

    But I never had trouble finding the KB exclusives before both of the ones near me closed. Nowadays, I think the closest one to me is about an hour away.

    I'm still sad that they're boing out-of-business. I scored some htf stuff at KBs.

    good riddance...they were freaking clueless as a company...
    everytime i shopped there the employees did not even know what was on sale or if they had the items in stock...even though the sales ad was printed and avaliable on the front sign area of the store...

    The only place more expensive than K-mart is/was KB. Now Hasbro can ship to more cheaper places.

    I'm not surprised. I'll kind of miss them, mostly because they were a great way to pick up weird stuff on clearance that you just couldn't find anywhere else.

    Goodbye to the only legitimate toy store in my hometown. I guess there's only Walmart now. Whoopee.

    "Buy nine and get half of them for a third of the fractional subspace subtotal for buying another three at 50% off +2."

    I hated Shopping at KB toys before they moved from my area a few years ago. Their deals were a bit loopy.
