This seems to be linked to recent rumors of a Toys "R" Us reboot in the works, which surfaced from a Bloomberg report. As kids, just the thought of visiting Toys R Us gave us a lot of excitement. Storch came to the company when it was in the midst of a debt-laden privatization deal in 2005, and left it in 2013, with $1 billion in revenue (pre-tax).

Many long-time employees were hoping to retire at a place they called home.

Madelyn Garcia, who has worked at Toys R Us for 30 years and became a manager at the Boynton Beach store in September, told The Palm Beach Post that the Toys R Us team is a "family" and therefore should be compensated properly. "It was the best job I had".

Jacob Rabon IV tweeted two of the photos with the caption: 'I can't believe childhood is cancelled'.
