Amazon mulls buying some Toys R Us stores

Amazon mulls buying some Toys R Us stores

The company's acquisition of Whole Foods a year ago added 450 locations and it's also opening a small line of bookstores and expanding its line of cashless convenience stores.

"The downward impact of Toys "R" Us on the whole toy industry will not be as devastating as many people thought, because the market has been going strong, growing at 4.5 percent annually in recent years", Pasierb told Observer.

If you have a Toys "R" Us gift card, you have a little less than a month to use it or you'll lose it.

It could also provide physical store, floor space to showcase and sell its popular Echo range of tech.

Amazon is testing two-hour grocery delivery in Austin, Texas, as well as Cincinnati, Dallas and Virginia Beach, Va., for Amazon Prime members who make online orders.

Still, the company is under little pressure to hammer out a deal and deliberations may lead nowhere.

"My assumption is that there's about half a billion dollars worth of toys that have been produced for Toys "R" Us with no place to go", Kassoff explained.

Some Toys "R" Us investors are mulling whether to salvage some stores as part of a slimmed-down version of the business, the New York Post reported. A buyer could potentially still operate some USA stores from a Canadian base.

By now, you've heard that Toys R Us is shutting its doors in the U.S.

An investment group led by Isaac Larian, the founder of toymaker MGA Entertainment Inc., has submitted a bid to acquire the Canadian business.
