Toys 'R' Us founder dies days after shutdown

Charles Lazarus- the founder of Toys R Us, the mega toy retailer has passed away at the age of 94, just one week after his company declared that it would be closing forever.

Another wrote: "Wow, we can try to save a toy store but can't raise money to protect our schools better".

Charles Lazarus, who founded Toys R Us 70 years ago, died on Thursday, one week after the announcement that the U.S. retailer would be closing down.

Girft cards, including e-gift cards, will be honored through April 21, but gift cards from Canada are no longer accepted at us stores.

Returns will be accepted under normal policies until April 21.

Even if the chain had chose to honor gift cards until the bitter end, customers might not find anything worthwhile to spend them on after a few weeks of going-out-of-business sales.

What happens to my rewards? You might still see these points accrue in your account, but you won't be able to redeem them.

The ToysRUs Endless Earnings program will continue to be honored through and including April 21, 2018. All ToysRUs coupons have lost their validity including Geoffrey Birthday Club coupons. The toy giant has not yet disclosed a timeline on other liquidation sales.

Charles Lazarus' passing comes just a few days after the announcement that Toys R Us is closing its doors for good. There have been reports recently that some Toys "R" Us stores had 50% off some Apple products, including older model Apple TVs and iPod Nanos, but selection and prices vary from store to store.

"For $25,000, you get: "A "#SaveToysRUs" bumper sticker, pin and magnet; an "I'll ALWAYS be a Toys R Us Kid" T-shirt; an invite to a local Toys R Us reopening block party, and a tour of the Ohio Little Tikes factory - the oldest toy factory now operating in the United States - including travel and accommodations.

If you are waiting for an online order from Babiesrus.com, be patient: The company said it had some delays in delivery and is in the process of working with vendors.

The plan allowed parents-to-be to earn 5% cash back on the first $300 of purchases made by you or others through your baby registry and then 10% on everything over $300. For now, yes. Babies R Us may stay open IF a buyer steps forward. "If Toys "R" Us is not here, I think the toy business as a whole will have a devastating year - this year and the following year".
