I saw two Grins and two SS's at Clark Target
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!
I was afraid the Paramus route 17 tru was closing but the address is for the babies r us across the highway.
Did you do a drive-by to confirm?
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.
Was there last thurs at totowa. Not 1 of my hunting spots, but they had shuri/klaw 2pack.
My girlfriend said she heard the toys r us on 17 north is closing too. But the address wasn’t on the list. I’ll have to ask the next time I go there.
Rip Burlington and cherry hill trus. Burlington was my childhood store 10 minutes from my parents house. Cherry hill surprises me as that one was always busy.
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.
And there is a tru outlet at jersey garden mall within walking distance.
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.
Tru union (not on the list) has 2 grimlocks and 2 starscreams.
TRU Eatontown (which is closing) has:
A bunch of of Starscreams
And 1 lone TR Highbrow
Any spotting of TF at TJ Maxx, etc yet?
Just the following from Dollar General:
Cherry Hill TRU is not closing and was not on the list.... The BABIES R US in Cherry Hill is closing and was on the list.
The target in manalapan has POTP's dreadwind 1, Jazz 2, a couple prime masters, and 1 of each leader class.
Picked up Optimus and Rodimus Prime at Target Hackensack last night. They had one of each left. No Voltron Classics there
