Time to stock up? See details of Toys R Us liquidation sale

After news broke of the Toys " R" Us liquidation, shoppers raced to Cary store on Friday to score deals.

A group of investors is trying to raise $1 billion in funding to save a remnant of the toy chain.

On Wednesday, a toy company exec and several investors set up a GoFundMe page and pledged $200 million towards rescuing the company.

The manager of the Toys R Us store in Johnson City says a liquidation sale will not begin Thursday as originally planned.

"When it comes to a liquidation, go there sooner rather than later if you want a toy that's hot", said Fox Business anchor Nicole Petallides.

Lazarus, the World War II veteran who founded Toys R Us six decades ago and transformed it into an iconic piece of Americana, died Thursday at age 94, a week after the chain announced it was going out of business.

"There have been many sad moments for Toys R Us in recent weeks, and none more heartbreaking than today's news about the passing of our beloved founder, Charles Lazarus", the company said. "It's not groceries and all that", Heitmann said. "I'm sure it will get better with time", said Ashmore. Toys "R' Us stores especially created a magical feeling for children roaming aisles filled with Barbies, bikes, lego and countless other toys".

Winning $457 million Powerball ticket sold in Pa.
Many people were crossing their fingers that no one would win, because they were hoping to see another billion-dollar jackpot. Lottery officials say they can't confirm the identity of the victor until the prize is claimed and their ticket is validated.

Toys R Us declined to comment on Larian's bids. The popular toy chain filed for liquidation late last week, triggering the likely closure or sale of all their U.S. stores.

Larian claims that if 400 U.S. Toys R Us stores are salvaged, he could save one-third of the 130,000 jobs.

"I sold my first product to Toys R Us in 1979", Larian said. That brand accounts for 25 percent of MGA total sales, and Larian says only Toys R Us really had enough room to display the cars.

While big-box competitors and online outlets have taken a big chunk of the business away, some shoppers will miss the Toys " R" Us experience.

Toys R Us had hoped to reorganize under the bankruptcy laws but opted to liquidate after what Toys R Us Chief Executive David Brandon called a "devastating" holiday shopping season past year.
