Toys R Us - Anyone been recently


Distinguished Member
I have been 3 times since Christmas to their store in Rochester, Kent. I am not sure if all stores are similar right now but they look like a company in trouble.

They do not appear to be getting in any new stock, they used to have shelf upon shelf of Hotwheels branded collection car's which sold out over Christmas but have not been replaced.

The shelves are empty and it is not looking good. Is it the same everywhere?

Been to loads around here including Stevenage & they're absolutely mobbed so don't appear to be in trouble. I've given them a grand since November too! (Babies R Us, which is a very good department/store).

I don't have any particular knowledge of this company but I'm sure that if I owned a group of toy stores I wouldn't have them stocked to the rafters in January either

Alas no Ben 10 ghost or Grandpa could be found so my ex's son whom treats me like an uncle will have to go without for awhile longer
