In farewell to United States shoppers, Toys R Us urges Play on!

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

The toy store opened its doors 70 years ago.

Toys R Us posted a touching final message on its last day of business.

By the end of the day Friday all Toys R Us and Babies R Us stores across the USA will be closed for good. Promise us just this one thing: Don't ever grow up.

Africa's hopes dashed as Senegal exit World Cup
The 27-year-old has opened up on a possible transfer but is focused on the World Cup . Both Japan and Senagal finished on 4 points and shared the same goal difference.

It was only a few months later in January 2018 that the chain announced it would close 180 stores thanks to its $5 billion debt.

Earlier this year in March, the company announced it will close all remaining 700 stores in the us after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in September last year and struggling to find a buyer. Days before filing for bankruptcy, Toys "R" Us executives drew millions in bonuses, a scenario that didn't sit well with rank-and-file workers.

Retailers like Walmart and Target were expanding their toy aisles to fill the hole, while Party City is opening 50 pop-up toy shops this fall. An auction for the company's name, baby shower registry and other trademarks is set for late July, so it's possible that Geoffrey could have an encore career.

The photo of a sullen Geoffrey the Giraffe was taken by Rene Johnpiere, believed to be an employee at a Toys "R" Us in Waterbury, Connecticut. Drugstores like CVS Health Corp (CVS.N) and Rite Aid Corp (RAD.N) and discount outlets like Dollar General Corp (DG.N) or TJ Maxx (TJX.N) may also stock their shelves with more toys, they said.

"I'm never going to have a job like Toys R Us", said long-time employee Patty Van Fossan, 54, from Boardroom, Ohio, who was among a group of workers at protests in NY, fighting for severance that they believe they are owed.

"I think Geoffrey the Giraffe signifies fun and childhood memories", a zoo representative told CBS San Antonio affiliate KENS.
