Toys R Us
Toys R Us was founded in 1948 by Charles Lazarus and opened its first store in Washington D.C. The company quickly grew to become a worldwide brand with more than 1,500 stores operating across 36 countries around the world in 2018 before entering into bankruptcy proceedings later that year. Over the decades, Toys R Us became synonymous with children’s toys, offering products from well-known brands such as Hasbro and Mattel at competitive prices. It also ran some of the most popular loyalty programs in retail history including rewards for purchasing specific items or earning free gift cards. In addition, it hosted events such as its "Great Big Toy Run" which supported charitable organizations like local pediatric wards or hospitals throughout the country. The company's slogan was "where a kid can be a kid," promoting an environment of playfulness wherever possible while providing families with top-of-the-line products aimed at keeping children entertained and educated indoors. Ultimately, Toys R Us served generations of customers across ages and demographics providing quality service until ending operations in June 2018 after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection earlier that year.
