"They won't have the one-stop shop convenience, but I do think they have enough resources in town both between big stores and local companies that they will be able to find what they need", said Sarah Ortega, Certified Lactation Counselor at Renown.

Toy's "R" Us will soon be no more, but another long-lost toy store could soon fill the void.

Kassoff, like several other players, is watching the collapse of Toys R Us in the USA and seeing an opportunity worth potentially well over $1 billion. While Toys "R" Us represented about 8% to 9% of total sales in 2017, we believe this amount had been pruned back since the Toys "R" Us initial bankruptcy announcement in September and had comprised a midsingle-digit level around the time of liquidation.

Last week, Toys "R" Us announced it had begun the process of shuttering its 700-plus remaining United States stores, leaving a number of analysts and toymakers questioning the long-term fate of the industry. "And we on goal left some big items on our registry in hopes of getting that money back and purchasing it", Young said.

Meanwhile, toy makers are fretting, and retailers and rivals are rubbing their hands. FAO Schwarz, once a unit of Toys R Us, is plotting a reentry into physical retail after exiting a couple years ago with the closure of its (very expensive) Manhattan flagship. Its downfall had been blamed on a heavy debt load and relentless trends that undercut its business model, from online shopping to mobile games. The sales will start of on the lower end, around 25 percent, with an increase in discount happening in the coming weeks.
