Here’s what it’s like to shop at Toys R Us for the last time

The famous toy retailer Toys R Us is finally closing up shop at more than 800 stores across America on Friday. In the lead-up to its final day, the retailer slashed prices to move its inventory. Toys R Us has long been a staple in American retail history. The store first opened in 1948 under its original name, Children’s Bargain Town. Almost a decade later, owner Charles Lazarus rebranded his stores with what would become a household name, Toys R Us. Source CNBC
