Anonymous person buys $1M worth of remaining toys at Toys 'R' Us

The bankrupt toy company announced that it would be shutting down all US locations in March

In February it announced that an additional 200 stores would close, and on March 14, the company confirmed that all stores in the U.S. would be closing, per Newsweek. A heartbreaking photo of Geoffrey is circulating, as Toys "R" Us closes its remaining stores on Friday.

Shared on Facebook by Rene Johnpiere, presumably a Toys 'R Us employee, Geoffrey looks straight-up sad. Numerous employees losing their jobs have worked for the company for decades.

Staff at the Triangle Town Center location will spend their final day at the retail giant boxing up the toys bound for charity, explaining the Raleigh location would stay closed on its final day.

The most recent set of photos, posted on Thursday night, shows the empty store in the moments before employees locked the doors for the last time.

Amazon to Buy Online Pharmacy Startup PillPack as Entry Into Health Care
The startup has raised north of $120 million in funding from big-name backers that include TechStars, Menlo Ventures, and Accel. PillPack is an online pharmacy which operates in all 50 U.S. states and offers pre-sorted dose packaging and home delivery.

As the last of the USA stores close, more than 30,000 workers will be looking for work. "I like the idea of donating the toys".

Like the store in Raleigh, Toys "R" Us other 700 stores across the USA shut down after the 70-year-old company fell victim to financial turmoil.

AOL reports the toy retailer will shutter all of its remaining locations across the United States by the end of the day, wrapping up its going-out-of-business sales in the process. "Play on!" the company posted on its website. Forbes, who started with the company in 1987, said she would continue to work until her store in Phoenix, Arizona, closes for good this week. "And now the big guys are walking away, and the workers are left with nothing".
