    I'm a PA resident; however, at my previous job, I worked in Bridgewater, NJ. Used to make lunch trips to TRU, and in fact snagged several of the Masterpieces still in my collection there. Unfortunately, that store is on the list of upcoming closures. Just thought I would share the info with you guys. RIP Bridgewater TRU!

    No I just googled the address that is on the list of closures and it’s for the babies r us. There’s no mention of the toys r us address across the highway.

    I'm glad, but still interesting how they will have two so close to each other, but the one at Wayne Hills is on the list. That leaves the big one in Totowa.

    I was thinking the same thing about the Cherry Hill TRU. I'm shock to see it included on the store closing list.

    Foot traffic doesn't necessarily equate to a profitable store. There are lease/upkeep costs and the labor cost will vary due to the local job market. I was surprised to see Eatontown on the list but not Hazlet till I really thought about how much cheaper Hazlet probably is to operate. The Elizabeth store closing will be a shame as its really nice but the costs were probably way out of wack compared to its sales.

    Eatontown TRU is closing, which really sucks. There was a better chance to find stuff there then the Hazlet one. the Hazlet one was a very poor run store and the one I actually hoped would go. Now it looks like it may need to be the go to.
