LocalFound 10th MarEdited by:"davidian84"
Its a little confusing but final day they had items listed at half original price then 50-70% off depending on category, then 80% of total basket price (day before final day was 50%). I saw this item down from £150 to £90 then 70% then 80% off, So only £5.40

97% off should make prices equal to Amazon..
Hope the staff manage to find jobs quickly.

Prepare for massive overcrowding and fights just before the last store closes. Oh... don't expect a guarantee either.I'm so glad that this horrible company has gone bust, they and their useless lazy staff deserve it


What's more likely, every staff member of Toys R Us is lazy and useless, or you're just a bit stuck up and get upset if they don't move the Earth for you?

So final day its 70% off marked price and 80% basket price?
Do you by chance know what the discount in the days before?
TIA
When does the Newbury Park ilford close

Toys R Us over priced considering it's in administration and it was in the papers comparing prices with other stores such as Amazon John Lewis ect yet again Toys R us was more expensive not surprised it's gone down.... Thanks for sharing op.

Think it was 50/70% depending on category weeks before closure. then they added 20% off total basket 5 days before, 50% day before and 80% final day. There may have been other ones but i only went in those 3 days
Any idea when ipswich closes or even Norwich? Thanks

No worries those articles are nonsense. toys r us stopped all thier promotions so charged rrp, then they steadily discounted prices as a whole. Its what all companies closing down do and makes perfect sense.

And somehow game still mange to stay open
Aberdeen closes on the 14th. The way it looked on Wednesday this week. I’d be surprised if there was anything left other than dust bunnies and cordon tape.
What have they done with Lego as Sheffield is still only 10%. Have they reduced it further in any of these stores. None are answering the phones lol

Any ideas how much the dust bunnies were?

Noticed a lot of very disappointed looking people in my local this morning they were expecting 70 percent off etc, I don't think Toys R us are being very clear in their advertising.
For those who don't know 70 percent off is only in stores originally marked for closure before admin took effect,there is nothing left in those stores worth buying and the other stores are as expensive as ever.

Well. For now.
Any stores closing first will ship all worthwhile stock to the stores that will stay open till the end. Administrators are after as much money that they can recoup for debts.

disagree the worthwhile stock was already discounted slowly to maximise money. if administrators were after most money they would keep online and ebay shops open and discount on individual items. instead they do it quickly to get over with.
Newtownabbey store closes on Tuesday. I was in there on Friday, depressing stuff - the entire stock had been reduced to 1 aisle, the rest of the building had been cordoned off. A further 90% at the till, they only had AAA batteries left I wanted AA
I bought a lot of their carrier bags, handy for the car! Oh they reduced their Lego cards (ToyRus branded) to 2p/pack, I imagine they would be 1p at the till...
hi anyone know when is Southampton store closing

Been through administration twice in previous jobs. BHS was the most recent, our store was one of the last stores open. There's no rush from administration as they want to maximize income plus let the staff find new jobs before closure to minimize redundancy pay.
Our local Toys R Us in Reading only had like 10% off LEGO and stuff was still more expensive than pretty much anywhere else. No wonder they went into administration, feel sorry for all the staff.

You could read the link posted earlier on this thread which shows when the initial 25 pre administration closure stores will close, and states that there are no plans to close other stores yet. Or you could just be like lots of other people on the thread and ignore it and ask the same question!

sorry my bad, I don't know I am so annoying you. I have problem viewing this web page, just hoping any kind person would like to give some hints.

Maybe you could choice just to ignore "this lots of people as you stated", so negative spirit, so judgmental. I wish you all well in health. You make it look like I have step on your toe. What do you mean "you lots of people" ? You make it seems the world is against you, or if not in "your way", others has to be deemed.
