Post by: Wedge1021 on March 28, 2014, 02:22:06 PM
Bad times for the toy retailer:

But hopefully the new CEO will turn things around:

Maybe it's just me, but it does seem like TRU has been have fewer and more-focused sales the last few months. Not as many of their ALL "X BRAND" TOYS 25% OFF sales.

I do hope things bode better for TRU down the road. While it hasn't exactly been perfect in the past 2-3 years, it's still a far better source IMO, for finding collectibles than (ugh) Walmart, and Target.  I'm not sure I'd still be collecting if I had to buy everything online or from the very pricey comic book shops.
