Topics regarding layoffs at Toys "R" Us

Is there still a chance?

I have seen in several reports that at least some of the stores might escape closings if somebody decides to buy them. The rumor mill has been working overtime, and so many names were thrown around as possible buyers, including Amazon. Could this... read more

Still numb

In all honesty, I didn't expect something like this could happen. I kept believing that this was all blown out of proportion by the media, and we'd get an announcement from Toys "R" Us saying that reports were not true. How wrong I was... This is... read more

ADP Payroll

Take a picture of the hours that they've worked for this pay period (and any future) in the ADP payroll program. Just in case, this may be (if necessary) a way of proving what is owed to you (pay wise). Also ALL employees should either be printing... read more

That Canadian buyer thing sounds like a load of BS. Why would someone saddle themselves with 8 billlion in debt. The liquidation would still run its course. There’s no reprieve.

Game Over-It's official

Some have asked how this could happen. That's a question you ask when you're utterly clueless about the financial position of the company. As in 5 billion in debt. Maybe next time you'll keep yourself a bit better informed, instead of watching... read more

Liquidation would mean 33,000 layoffs

I was wondering what the total number of people losing their jobs in case Toys R Us goes through with liquidation would be, and I'll admit it's higher than I expected. I truly hope this does not come to pass. Thirty-three-thousand families losing... read more

Repost from another thread, very important info!

In the event of a Chapter 7 filing (and possible pay delays) employees should ask to take a picture of the hours that they've worked for this pay period (and any future) in the ADP payroll program so that they will have a concrete way of proving what... read more

Media is pushing the story a bit

Not saying chapter 7 won't happen, but the article (link below) makes sense. I think the media as usual is pushing the story. I don't work for Toys, but I am a retail manager for another company that is also struggling . I really feel for all you... read more

Looks like we might be bringing more down with us

An analyst from Jefferies estimates that 10 to 15 percent of Toys R Us' total business will be lost if it liquidates. Toy companies such as Hasbro and Mattel have already begun preparing contingency plans in the event that Toys R Us initiated a full... read more

Who else is dreading Monday?

It is not enough that we had to stress after chapter 11 over which stores would be closed, now we get to stress over if ALL off the stores will be closed. Before, we at least could hope we would not be among those affected. I've read in a Wall Street... read more

No severance

How low can they go? There will be no severances paid out to people in the closing stores. So not only is everybody losing their livelihood, they will be given absolutely nothing to tide them over until they can find new jobs. And yet, I'm positive... read more

Rich are never satisfied

This is all about private equity greed. Buy out a company, load it up with debt to get back your principle investment, extract huge "management fees", then sell off the debris. Same thing with Sears, Winn Dixie, Remington.......

Can we transfer stores?

It's just a matter of time

It looks like TRU is on the list of retailers that are on death watch for 2018. No real surprise there, I guess, but it still kills that little bit of hope I was holding on to. Right now we need a miracle to survive past this year, and I doubt it's... read more

Media said Holiday sales were good

Hundreds of stores closings due to bad holiday sales
