"I'm a Toys R Us kid!"

"I don't want to grow up. I'm a Toys R Us kid," has been a popular jingle for decades, but from now on, there will be no more Toys R Us kids, except maybe in Raleigh, North Carolina.

 On the final day of business at a Toys R Us store in Raleigh's Triangle Town Center, an anonymous good Samaritan paid $1 million to purchase every store left in the store. So instead of spending their final day selling to last-minute customers, store personnel locked the door early and spent all day boxing up the inventory for charity. Shoppers who showed up hoping for bargains didn't seem put off when told the toys had all been sold to a donor, to be given to needed children. "Oh wow, that's nice" said one mom.
