Rene Johnpiere, who is believed to be a Toys R Us employee, shared the photo along with other pictures of the empty store, according to CBS News.

Toys "R" Us, one of the largest and most iconic toy retailers, shuttered stores across the county, closing 700 total, including all of North Carolina stores.

"Thanks to each of you who shared your unbelievable journey to (and through) parenthood with us, and to every grandparent, aunt, uncle, brother and sister who's built a couch-cushion rocket ship, made up a hero adventure, or invented something goeey".

Toys 'R Us filed for bankruptcy in September 2017 and began closing its 735 USA stores in March, with the last and final round of the brick and mortar locations officially closing doors this week.

As of writing, the update is nowhere to be seen, with Epic tweeting that there are issues with the LTM's return. You gather resources 10x faster than normal, and there are more llamas and chests to loot.

Earlier this year in March, the company announced it will close all remaining 700 stores in the USA after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in September last year and struggling to find a buyer.

KB Toys, which filed for bankruptcy and closed all USA stores in 2009, is also said to be mulling a comeback.

"I love, I mean, Babies R Us and Toys R Us".

Retailers like Walmart and Target are expanding their toy aisles to fill the hole as customers look for new places to shop.

Patty Van Fossan, a long-time employee from OH said of the closure: 'I'm never going to have a job like Toys R Us. "I was surrounded by children".

In 1965, Geoffrey the giraffe became the company's mascot, appearing in his first TV commercial in 1973.
