About Toys "r" Us, Inc.

Geoffrey the Giraffe may be going extinct. After filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in late 2017, the company in 2018 began liquidating and closing all its US stores. Once one of the world's largest toy retailers, the company had been grappling for years with how to grow its business amid a weak selling environment for specialty retailers. It was competing with Wal-Mart Stores and Target , which both lure shoppers with groceries and other basics. Furthermore, its breadth of selection was being challenged by online giant Amazon.com. The company is searching for buyers (or other options) for its Canadian and other international operations.
