Toys R Us has now submitted a document stipulating the details for the purchase of the Canadian equity sale.

What is interesting here is that only the Canadian equity is specified, meaning that there is interest for Toysrus Canada, enough to have an auction, but no indication of the 200 US stores Toys that were part of previously discussed deals. The auction itself will take place on the 18th of April at the offices of Kirkland & Ellis LLP, located at: 601 Lexington Avenue, New York, NY 10022. And the 23rd, just a few days after, is when the successful bidder will be revealed.

There are a few more dates and conditions involved so if you want to own this lucrative toy store in a country with minimal competition for that sector, here are the dates you need to be aware of:


Bid Deadline: April 13, 2018, at 5:00 p.m., prevailing Eastern Time, is the deadline by which all bids must be actually received pursuant to the Bidding Procedures.

Notice of Qualified Bid Deadline: April 16, 2018, at 5:00 p.m., prevailing Eastern Time, is the date and time by which the Debtors shall notify the Bidders whether their Bids are Qualified Bids.

Auction: April 18, 2018, at 10:00 a.m., prevailing Eastern Time, is the date and time by which the Auction, if needed, will be held at the offices of Kirkland & Ellis LLP, located at: 601 Lexington Avenue, New York, NY 10022. The Debtors shall send written notice of the date, time, and place of the Auction to the Qualified Bidders no later than two business days before such Auction, and file a notice of the date, time, and place of the Auction with the Court no later than two business days before such Auction and post such notice on the Debtors’ Case Website: http://www.cases.primeclerk.com/toysrus. The Debtors may modify, in consultation with the Consultation Parties, the date, time, and place of the Auction by providing written notice to Qualified Bidders and filing a notice with the Court so long as such notice is no later than two days before the Auction.

Sale Objection Deadline: if applicable, April 16, 2018,3 at 5:00 p.m., prevailing Eastern Time, is the deadline to object to the Canadian Equity Sale.

Hearing to Designate Successful Bidder: if applicable, April 23, 2018, as the date by which the Debtors shall seek approval from this Court to designate the Successful Bidders in connection with the Canadian Equity Sale.

I, for one, am excited for the day when I can call Toys r' Us a quality Canada-only store, and can convince younger generations that it was always this way. :D :CON:

After a long, upsetting demise over the last few months, the next sad chapter in Toys R Us' decline has come to pass. Visitors attending Toys R Us' website will now notice a pop-up window upon loading the site, noting that the website has been "shut down for any further purchases" - essentially, the company is no longer accepting online orders via their website. Following that is a link to a sparse new website, goodbuytoysrus.com, through which users can simply track the liquidation sales at all brick-and-mortar locations around the US with a store locator.

The wording of their message does seem to imply that Toys R Us will still honor any unfulfilled online orders placed before this occurred, but there's been no official word one way or the other on that front, so further confirmation is awaited there.

Check below for the full message, and let us know if this will affect your plans at all by posting in the Energon Pub. As always, stay tuned for more Transformers news, however disappointing it may be.

[quote]Thanks for visiting. We have shut down the website for any purchases but our brick and mortar stores are open and holding going out of business sales. You can keep up-to-date with this historic sale at http://goodbuytoysrus.com. We encourage you to stop by your local store and take full advantage of the deep discounts and deals available. Thank you for your business and support over the years.

Sincerely, Toys"R"Us and Babies"R"Us teams.[/quote]

So I wonder where all of the online and warehouse stock is going to end up? :-? Probably wont be going into the closing stores. I feel like liquidation stores big and small are going to be amazing come the holiday season. I'm really looking forward to seeing what shows up at the local salvage stores come October or so.

My TRU store abruptly today. I was there last night and there were some empty shelves but still lots of merchandise (including Cybertron). I only picked up a couple things and planned on going tomorrow to get a couple more but I just found out it's permanently closed today. I would have bought a lot more had I known they were closing today. I'm bummed.

:lol: I was making terrible jokes at the expense of all my american compatriots today with my wife when I strolled into a fully stocked TRU in Canada that was alive and well.

And picked these up for a friend:



Toys the US never got at retail from a store the US no longer has.

Thought about taking the journey down to the one remaining TRU in the state next week while I'm on vacation, but it isn't showing up on the store locator. Either the locator is broken or they abruptly closed down all of the stores in Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont, the nearest one to me is in Massachusetts now.

I guess I can't be too surprised, they probably don't have any staff left working in them. I found a local article talking about how they've always had retention issues and have had a parade of other stores' recruiters coming in and leaving their business cards in the break room recently.
