Anonymous person buys $1M worth of remaining toys at Toys 'R' Us

Today Is the Day Every Last Toys R Us Store Closes WWE's Triple H Offers To Save Toys R Us Mascot With NXT Opportunity

The 70-year-old tale of Geoffrey the Giraffe is officially coming to an end as Toys "R" Us closes its last stores in the USA on Friday.

In the less than two days since Johnpiere posted the image on Facebook, it has been shared almost 300,000 times.

This disappointed a steady stream of last-day shoppers who arrived, dejected, to find doors locked.

But sources have told The New York Post that Walmart executives had identified some 800 Walmart stores within five to 10 miles from an old Toys "R" Us location to carry extra toy inventory.

The 70-year-old company filed for bankruptcy late last year and has spiraled downward since.

The photos showed empty shelves and checkout counters, with signs that said, "All sales final - No returns" and "Final day!"

Triple H got a big kick out of the images and took to social media to tease that maybe fans will see Geoffrey in an NXT ring someday.

Google Home Speakers Complain Of 'Glitch'
The smart speakers house the artificial intelligence-powered Google Assistant which responds to voice commands and requests. The issue appeared to be global with complaints coming from the UK, the United States, Australia and India.

However, according to Newsweek, Toys R Us will continue to operate stores outside of the United States and Canada. "I was surrounded by children".

In case you need reminding, here is Geoffrey in happier times.

One user tweeted the photo saying: "Goodbye, Geoffrey the Giraffe".

A mysterious man purchased $1 million worth of toys at a Toys R Us and donated them to children. What we found was a manager who didn't want us filming, no Geoffrey, and a pretty good sale on a small selection of toys.

Will the Toys R Us name and mascot disappear forever?

Only a few months later in March, the decision was made to liquidate.
