that's why brought up my example with the Kreon's. Fairly small items, with equivalent shipping is fine. But $70 to ship a 150 Unite Warriors set =$220 -NO THANK YOU.

I got severely worried about my Toy's R Us in Monroeville when I saw the address...only to be relieved that it's just a Babies R US. Phew.

I feel bad for the two closing in Alabama, because they are the best 2 within my local area, the 3rd one that is local is kind of sorry and is a babies r' us/tru hybrid in hoover, alabama, another one that is just a babies r us is around, wish they would have closed those 2 instead... the best one in the state is Hunstville, AL followed closely by the Summit and Tuscaloosa comes in a not so distant 3rd... too bad they couldnt close the useless baby r u parts instead :(

guess I will have to check out and see if they have any exclusives soon if I get the chance before they close.

Looks like only one of the 3 TRU's near me will be closing. I am gonna miss it because I went to yugioh tourneys there as a kid. It's a huge bummer. Like I said the other two will still be there, not that I have been there in years anyway.

The Bloomington, Illinois store should also be on the list. I don't understand the Schaumburg closure...the store was recently renovated from complete craphole to almost decent. I'm sure the rent is just too much in such a swanky Chicago suburb.


I think they are looking more at coverage areas than anything else. That would help explain Moline's and Bloomington's survival versus Schaumburg, Highland Park and Vernon Hills.


I don't think coverage is an issue there, as Davenport, IA is staying open, too (right across the river). I'm always able to find stuff there in stock the quickest, but it also looks transported here from the '80s.



Davenport remaining open was one of the reason's I thought Moline would likely close and surprised it is not on the list. Both locations have been helped by Kmart closures too. TRU Moline has Target to contend with, but Davenport location is holding its own in that very weird/horrible traffic/corner lot. I do miss the Davenport Kmart. I missed out on Lego deals at both and very disappointed.


I'm from Iowa City, so the the absolutely horrendous traffic corner doesn't bother me as long as I can find cool stuff there like the boxsets. I need more reasons to go there because the stock is always better than the one in Cedar Rapids.

The only TRU near me isn't closing but they really need to fix their stocking practices. They only restock Transformers like once every 6 months.

And every store needs to do better online. They all suck balls especially Hasbrotoyshop.

Went to my local TRU for the first time in years. While the WWE section was overflowing, the Transformers section was full of crickets. Bunch of those overpriced legion figures (they are overpriced at every store I go to) a whole convoy of Armor Turbo Changer Hounds, AKA the stuff nobody buys. There were at least 30+ of the legion figs from TLK and RiD.

I'd like to note that they didn't have any thing from Titans Return, but they did have ONE Dreadwind from PotP so I think they were getting cleaned out on the good stuff. My guess is that they are just ordering the wrong stuff to hit their mark or the good stuff gets cleaned out too fast so they are stuck with shelf-warm city.
