Toys 'R' Us says it will likely close all U.S. stores, threatening 33,000 jobs. 'We are putting a for sale sign on everything'

Damn man that blows. They will always have a place in my heart.
"Koolzone isn't some domain you can buy, its not a name, it's not a specific board software, its that special little place in our hearts, its the joy you felt when you were a kid on christmas and you woke up to go find presents under the tree. Its your first kiss, your lost virginity, its the love an abusive step father has for his son he never wanted because he really just wanted to get in the mom's pants but the kid was part of the packaged deal. Its the twinkling of a star as you look up into the night sky and realize how big the universe is. KZ isn't just some website or name. It's a little piece of magic in all of us. :) " -Omni

My mom took me there once because they were giving shots for free.

I remember those days. That's where I bought my Dreamcast and my first few games for it. Used to get my SEGA Master System games there too.

At some point I switched to Funcoland (I think it was called)

I took my son to one back when it was still open. Literally everything in the store you could find on amazon much cheaper. Not surprised they shut down.

Would check Toys’R’us Sunday ads in the newspaper, sometimes good deals. From Genesis days on up to ps2 at least. Also remember funcoland. Gamestop bought them :/
