My local store will remain as well. We had a second one in my town & it closed years ago, which was a good thing. The streamlining created much less waste & overstock. I expect to see a huge overhaul in general, tho. I don't think we'll be seeing so many random items & very specific import items that just rot on shelves for eternity. I mean I like stuff by SH Figuarts and Tomashi Nation too, but I'm not gonna pay premium price for whatever smattering of items or mixed bag that seem to make it to the shelves. If I want anything in the line of imports I'll order it specifically as I need it. I'm not gonna go to TRU looking to purchase a $50 plus fragile item on impulse. Scale it back a little & focus on items that are sure money makers. Marvel, Star Wars, DC Comics & WWE are all sure cash grabs. Branch out with some popular fringe items like Funko Pops & Color Tops but carrying everything under the sun is an outdated business model that's only gonna lead to certain failure in today's market. We need TRU to be successful as collectors and we need them as an outlet for continued exclusive releases so I truly hope they get their act together.

Yeah, as far as boy toys go, outside of the few fan favorites, TRU has been getting way out into obscuroland for a while now. Refocus on the popular stuff that sells. I want to see whole aisles dedicated to Marvel, WWE, etc as I remember it in the 80's with GI Joe.

TRU could definitley benefit from scaling their "adult collector" section back to just NECA, Diamond Select, Funko, and McFarlane Toys. I agree, there's just too much random stuff littering their shelves. Most TRUs I visit are a wreck.

That is why I may go to my TRU once a year . Just a mess . But it is closing so its a moot point I guess. I get all my figures on line as you can't find jack here in Jax.
