Billionaire Toy Exec Launches GoFundMe To Save Toys "R" Us

Sterling Toy ‘R’ Us Store Liquidation Sale On Hold

At Babies R Us, a large sign was posted inside the entrance which said the liquidation sale had been "postponed until further notice".

It's expected sale prices will continue to plummet as the store gets closer to closing, but workers said they didn't know when the next big price cut would be. He's started a GoFundMe page to try to raise more, through small contributions from people who love the stores, as well as to generate publicity about his efforts. Ten hours in, Larian had raised $2,000, mostly in $5 and $10 increments.

The store has an iconic place in American culture, said Larian. "I've done it with my kids and my grandkids, and it makes me really sad", she said. "This needs to be saved for the next generation". According to an article from Couponsinthenews.com, "Toys "R" Us said it's hoping to sell up to 200 of its combination Toys "R" Us/Babies "R" Us stores as a package deal with its Canadian stores".

Charles Lazarus' net worth is estimated to be more than $100 million. "Everyone deserves to be a Toys "R" Us kid", said Larian.

"We were excited to do our registry here and now it's just a mad dash to figure out what's next", said Audrey.

Larian plans to develop a special program to benefit Toys "R" Us employeeswho participate in this campaign.

And gadget seller Sharper Image stopped accepting gift cards when it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2008.

"Every penny it made went to paying the debt service", he said. Almost 1 in every 5 sales made by Bratz doll-maker MGA Entertainment, where Larian is CEO, is rung up at a Toys R Us store.

Charles Lazarus died at 94 Thursday morning, according to a Toys "R" Us spokesman. But he won't disclose his offer while bids are still coming.

Unable to fend off rivals while saddled with more than $5 billion in debt, the company filed for bankruptcy in September 2017 and in recent days began closing down its USA and United Kingdom operations while attempting to reorganize and sell its remaining global units. But in January, after what CEO David Brandon called a "devastating" holiday shopping season, 182 stores were marked for closure.

Liquidation sales were scheduled to begin Thursday but were postponed "due to circumstances beyond our control".

"I'm heartbroken", said Angela Esposito of Danvers, who was at the store with her son, Anthony, 4. "You don't have to go searching for it online".

Isaac Larian, the billionaire toy executive behind Bratz, Little Tikes and L.O.L. Surprise! dolls, wants to save Toys R Us.
