    teemu8 is correct, June 30th is the final day but it is not set in stone. Could close a bit earlier if a store runs out of inventory before then.

    Might go after June too.(Maybe another week or two). Some Stores are still receiving product too. 4 weeks left to sell all product with 70% capacity left to go.Don't see it happening by June 30th

    Don't underestimate the power of 70-90% off.

    I remember when Kmart shut down earlier in the year, my local store went from having a decent amount of stuff left - and still at 50% or less off - to massive discounts and virtually cleared out within about 3 - 4 weeks. I can easily see TRU being done by June 30th, based on that example.

    Even Disney and Lego don't go for anything bigger than a shop inside a mall so it would be pretty crazy to have a Hasbro store the size of a Toys-R-Us.

    To my knowledge, shipments from DCs stopped in mid April and augmented product deliveries stopped almost 3 weeks ago. Trust me on this one, a lot of stuff has already been picked over or run out, your mileage may vary.

    Um, another big shipment is coming at some stores. I know. Some TRU's are not selling their stuff as fast so they are moving product out to better selling stores. Though,my store is at 70% capacity which is alot to sell in 4 weeks.We'll see how it goes

    Ah, I see. Must be a store by store basis. The stores in my area are done receiving anything altogether. Wonder if it’ll be another pallet or two of Star Wars: The Force Awakens merchandise lol.

    Its a bit sad I use to go a lot to Toys R Us as a kid and now for my Transformers needs. It sucks now that there closing doors for good, I just went to my local Toys R Us to see what Transformer Stock they had left and nothing was there just a few of the RC Sweeps. Well gonna have to looks elsewhere
