Where I live there's an independent toy store in the neighbouring town. It's really the only place where I buy such things when I need them. They got an excellent selection and their prices are mostly competetive with the internet.

I really can't say I have any feelings when some large chain goes down. I'd feel sad if that abovementioned store had to close because of market pressure by these giants.

I remember getting my parents to take me when we were in town but we never really bought anything.

 

Yes... lusting after those Sega Master System games behind the glass...

I remember missing out on buying both a Quake 2 action figure and a Quake 64 a long time ago. I regret not getting both of those things.

The last time I remember being in a Toys R Us, I was fawning over the Nintendo 64. I grew out of most toys after that, so I never really went to one again.

 

As for how I feel...not much of anything. Even as a kid they weren’t the best toy store near me (I randomly found out my favorite in my old town went out of business about a decade ago... that made me sad) and it’s not like there aren’t plenty of alternatives.

I got good memories in my Toys R Us, I got my Gameboy Advance that actually came with Wario Land 4, WWF Road to Wrestlemania and somehow, Doom. I also ended up getting an awful lot of Lego too, inlcuding one a set I tried to get my dad to help me get from eBay. Another memory is coming in just to have a lightsabre fight with someone from school. The last time I brought something there were actually a couple of Nerf Guns which was approx a year before it closed it's doors. It sucks even more I have to cycle past it to get to work.

I distinctly remember us always passing it by in the car because we were too poor.
