Toys R Us - Liquidation Sale

Administrators have failed to find a buyer for Toys R Us is closing so the stores closing. Sad for the staff who will lose their jobs, but it should hopefully mean some good discounts.

Online store closes Friday.

    I am…. ready.

    So when is the sale start?

  •  

    There is little in that store thats worth getting. Some baby r us stuff. Lego. Maybe the ride ons. The store in Moorabbin has been a dud. Sure some customers. Just think online has killed the large toy shop. Even the small ones are closing locally.

  •  

    Wondering if there is anything at all maybe even worth getting like board game wise or books for kids and toddlers around 4-16 ages.

    So many nephews and nieces.

    Went into high point store just the other day, stock is already low as suppliers weren’t giving them stock in case they don’t pay. No one wants to be a creditor to them. So it was a little empty and sad.

    Man, there was nothing like being given some Christmas money and let loose in a Toys'R'Us store when I was a kid! It was inevitable (deal with it Harvey), but are kids these days going to have the same appreciation or wonder when browsing toys online? No way.

      Has the threat really come from online retailers though?
      I think that Kmart and Big W being much better priced and much more local to most people (far more branches) is more significant.

    Went into Alexandria today. Lego shelves already half-depleted despite being at full RRP. I've never managed to understand how TRU manage to sell any Lego - doesn't everyone know the same stuff is about 25% cheaper at Big W and Kmart. I'm just hoping fools don't go in and buy it all while it's merely 20% off - it's not even competitive until it's 25% off let alone a bargain.

    Dick Smith's closing down seemed to really drag on - I hope they won't repeat that. Didn't the shop floor staff end up not being paid so they grabbed all the real bargains themselves or hid them until they were bargains?
    I suppose it depends on how long they have left on their store's leases and they'll run them out with a skeleton staff.

    Was in store yesterday. Lack luster sales atm.

  •  

    Sale started today. Most items are 10% off, lego 5% off, pool toys 30% off. Might wait to see next week if the discount increase

  •  

    Nothing much at Hornsby. They have very limited range. I sees 5 & 10% but none in sight for 30%. Let's wait next week.

  •  

    anyone seen much at Doncaster or Chadstone stores? i'd be looking at smaller stuff like action figures, hatchibles, etc

      Maybe not much help but I went to Knox store they still have heaps of stock. Not much discount to be have. most of them only 10% off and the prices are already almost twice as expensive as Kmart or target.

    Merged from Up to 30% off at Toys 'R' Us & Babies 'R' Us: Closing down Sale
    Go to Deal

    Hi I'm a young casual worker at Toys'R'Us (TRU) & Babies 'R' Us (BRU). I enjoy using Ozbargain so I decided to share my knowledge on the Closing down sales that are happening due to TRU going into Liquidation last week.

    This week (22/6 to 29/6) the will be UP TO 30% off ALL stock. I have attached a PDF that contains an exhaustive list of the discounts for TRU and BRU categories.

    In coming weeks expect further discounts (there are 40's under all our 30% off signs) and I expect the sales to last just over a month give or take a couple weeks. Remember nothing will get restocked so don't wait too long unless your a real bargain hunter.

    Please notices
    * Online store is down
    * There are no refunds, all sales are final unless faulty
    * Giftcards can be used if the total is at least double the value of the giftcard.
    * UltimateKids giftcards are not accepted
    * VIP points cannot be redeemed

      Up to 30% off at that store is basically down to RRP.

      @NubblyTheslime can you turn on your direct messaging?

      Hi NubblyTheslime,

      Do you have any further updates? Thanks again for posting the PDF last time!

      Hopefully we're getting close to some good bargains ;)

    Even with closing down discounts. Toys are still cheaper at Big W toy mania.

    I went to a store today. Heaps of stock, no customers. Up to 40% off. Random items at various prices. Most at min 10%. Obviously trying to get as much out of the sale as they can. So this store still has a lot of stock. I would say it would need to ne 25% or more to be worthwhile. As others have said TRU have the regular RR which is still a lot more expensive than other stores.

    They just cant compete with the larger department stores for the popular toys. They have alot of range, but were people actually buying it. Ie Theres like 5-7 different ride on motor cars. You would really only need to stock say 4. Boy and girl versiona nd 2 model types. Even though they have heaps of toys we walked out there with nothing. Just overpriced even with the 10%off. The 40% items you wouldnt have brought anyway.

    A poor dad was there grabbing a lego set. Was going to let him know its not worth it unless its a rare set. Target have 20% of at the moment. And even that isnt special really as a discount amount.

    Went in store yesterday as the email suggested now 30-50% off (*exclusions apply)

    LEGO 25% off, as well as a lot of the Babys’R’Us stuff, but the majority of things now 30% off.

    Laughable advertising.
    Huge printed signs all around the store "EVERYTHING 30% OFF LOWEST TICKETED PRICE" then in smaller print beneath, "Exceptions Apply"! - So it's not "Everything" then!
    Of course, Lego is one such thing that is an exception, at 25% off and the prices are still not as good as elsewhere, except maybe for big Creator sets. Sadly too many people don't realise this and are buying it up so there will be very little left by the time the reductions do actually make it cheap(ish). Which seems to be the story across the store.

    Another gripe is that it appears it's not 30% off lowest ticketed price either - most items had tickets on them marrking items down by 30% saying "No further reductions" at the bottom. When I asked staff what the price was they said it was the ticketed price!
    - So those giant signs are lying about that too.

    Now a final gripe: we went to get a kid's bike. At 30% off it was cheaper than Anaconda downstairs. However Toys R Us only had the floor model left. Instead of further discounting it for being a grubby, floor model they had the cheek to charge an extra $20 for it being assembled!
    I told them to stuff it and paid the $10 extra for a clean one from Anaconda in it's box. I suppose I should have asked if Anaconda would price match.

    TRU are doing a good price on Vuly trampolines if any one is in the market for one - I got a Lift Pro Large this morning for $659. Northland, Victoria.
