If Dan Fife, or anyone else for that matter has something bad to say about Toys "R" Us, they should say it here.

the bad I have to say so far is them closing the NYC flagship store. That should have made it.

What Toys "R" Us needs to do to increase sales in there stores is to bring back the Kids "R" Us clothing brand and sell it at Toys "R" Us stores.

They did not even have the NES Classic Edition at my local Toys "R" Us last year!

I blame lots of factors for Toys "R" Us' demise:

* Debt problems from their leveraged buyouts in 2005
* Competition from other retailers (including Walmart and Target)
* Online shopping (Amazon, eBay, AliExpress, Etsy)
* Kids of the 2010s showing little interest in toys and more interest in computer and video games
* People choosing to shop at local toy stores (if one is available in their area) to find the best toys
* The thing I like to call "the incredible shrinking middle class," where the middle class is getting poorer, thus, they can not afford expensive goods

Did WAlmart and Target increase their Toy Isles or something?

The debt one was obvious.

I noticed Toys are not as appealing as they once where.

Whats chances Toys r us will survive this bankruptcy? and also I hope some store can come in and replace Toys r us as that experience, so its not all kids do now is tag along when their parents clothes shop. Toys r us is as mean as Snoke From Star Wars

I expect the aisle sizes at Walmart, Target or any other retailer for that matter to remain the same unfortunately, as it would require removing large portions of other aisles which contain stuff we might need. Those buildings can only hold so much merchandise, and putting too much into one building could lead to narrow aisles, which can be hard to navigate with carts or strollers.

in places where Toys r us is closing I HOPE They step up to pick up where Toys r us left off.

Some places in the US didnt get a Toys r us till the mid 1990s like the Dakotas, and what did they do? I hope its not "GEt what you can at WAlmart" during the HEman Toy craze

No.

And "isles" is spelt "aisles" as in "toy aisles," NOT as in "British Isles," the way that it its used in that sentence. Did you fail grammar class?!
