Monday, May 14, 2018 marked the end for many employees working at the Toys "R" Us Global Resource Center in Wayne, New Jersey. While "several hundred" staffers are said to have stayed on as the wind-down of the U.S. businesses continues, there's the "highly unusual" early exit of many top executives, including Chairman and CEO David A.

The 2011 Holiday Shopping Season is officially underway for Toys "R" Us, as the company invited shoppers to''Join Geoffrey for the Ultimate Kick Off to Christmas'' at it's stores yesterday afternoon.
