This is why Toys R Us failed. They are currently closing down yet are only offering 15% off of their Lego sets.

Uncompetitive even in the final days.

Not sure why everyone moans about toysrus as they were the cheapest for lego as they always price matched. I' m a collector and will be sorry to see them go.

But it’s suggested that a large number of manufacturers (lego included) has demanded toys R us to NOT liquidate / clearance their stock.....it’s perceived value....if lots of shops start selling below cost, waaaay too many Muppets are going to believe that the below cost is the true value.....result is no one can sell at a profit and market crashes.....just how much margin do people think is in a box of Lego for the retailer? I’ll bet somewhere between 10 and 30%..... no way are places selling at 50% off and making a profit , unless they’re doing some fancy accounting by writing down costs values internally over time vs storage costs.....
Can anyone tell me what were the sets

Missed the point there fella! The point I'm making is that TRU closing down prices are still higher than most places and in this particular thread another store is offering a bigger discount than TRU and they are not even closing down.


I've visited my local TRU and all of the "reduced- closing down" products I was interested in were still cheaper on regular everyday Amazon.

Yes, I got your point and your response is exactly the issue Toys R Us has.....competitors are selling at a LOSS to become cheaper!....by loss, I mean that they sell it at less than it was invoiced for!!
Doesn't sound like a very good business model. Selling for loss
Retailer margin is between 30% and 45% on lego.
