    A lot of misinformation and conjecture in this video. TRU was not the victim of online sales and big box retail, sure a factor. But TRU was I intentionally sunk by hedge funds. And the locations this video advertised as being open in New York and Texas are closed as well. TRU however as a brand does still exist outside the US and in decent numbers. Come on BotchMojo

    I used to work for Toys R us and let me tell you, maybe it was just this one location but they had terrible practices and treated their employees like disposable workhorses. I would have closing shifts at 10pm and be expected to show up at 3am. When popular toys were on a good sale we could only put out a limited quantity on the shelf for the duration of the sale, and one of these times a mom wanted a furby for her kid for Christmas but the shelf display was empty so we were supposed to tell her that we sold out however I knew we had a shitload in the back so I grabbed her one and my manager saw and I got punished. FUCK THEM! GLAD THEY WENT UNDER.

    My late uncle used to work for Circuit City! There's also Blockbuster! I think only 1 or 2 stores still exist out on the West Coast. On that note, it's also like with Hollywood Video or Movie Gallery! Family Video is still around, though, but they've closed ALL of their stores and gone to online stores only. I used to love wandering around Family Video! I'm pretty sure that a majority of the movies and game that I bought were from Family Video. Going there made it worthwhile to get all A's on my report card in school as well as their movie sales to make room for new inventory! When I wouldn't shop there for a while, they'd give me a discount to come back to them and they were cool with videos not being returned on the button: as long as it was in the dropbox by the time they opened the next day. I'm pretty sure I spent half to 3/4 of my life there!
