Because, aviously…

Only a few weeks remain before the Times Square Toys R Us store shuts down for good.

This store is their flagship location, and features a giant indoor Ferris Wheel, loaded with cars and other popular kids toys (like the Mystery Machine Van and fire trucks).

Previous years the store was open 24-hours a day in the lead up to Christmas, but with less snowstorms across the country this year (leading to less impact on their sales) and with the rise of internet shopping, they skipped that tradition this year.

Earlier this year Toys R Us shut down the famous FAO Schwartz store on 5th Avenue (as made famous in BIG) after buying them out six years ago. FAO Schwartz products are still carried in Toys R Us stores.

Both closing are being attributed to rising prices of real estate in NYC.
