One of Erie’s best-known toy stores is no more; Toys ‘R’ Us closing its doors for the last time.
The iconic chain closing 800 stores unable to compete with larger box stores and online sales. Customers looking for those last-second deals say they are sorry to see Toys ‘R’ Us leave.
Erie Resident Veronica Bridges says, “We should have made it here a week before… it closed down… It was a good store. We enjoyed it while it was in Erie; sad to see it go.” She says she’ll miss it, especially during Christmas.
The Party City chain has struck deals with toy makers and hopes to get into the toy market soon.
