The Star Wars toys sat on the shelves and now Toys R Us is feeling the result of the social justice fucking that American Audiences were subjected to.
Toys R Us is reportedly planning to close another 200 stores and lay off more workers.
The retailer plans to close an additional 200 locations and lay off “a significant portion of its corporate staff,” people familiar with the matter told The Wall Street Journal.
Toys R Us previously announced that about 170 stores would be shuttered by April, resulting in 4,500 workers losing their jobs. The 200 newly reported planned closures will be in addition to the April closures, and likely impact even more in-store workers in addition to corporate staff.
Sources told The Wall Street Journal “discussions about the store closings are continuing, and the number of closures could change.” Toys R Us did not immediately respond to Business Insider’s request for comment.
“The only thing selling fast was this line of Porg Sex Dolls from China” said Griman, “Everything else is sitting on the shelves especially the Ray jedi dolls”
Toys R Us has struggled in recent years, as budget retailers like Walmart and e-commerce giants like Amazon have begun selling more toys at greater discounts.
The company filed for bankruptcy in September. If Toys R Us closed an additional 200 stores in the US, it would cut its domestic retail operation in half — from roughly 800 in September, to just 400.
“We were expecting to make millions from these last jedi toys, billions. Now they are all going to the incinerator and our company is ruined” said Griman.
