I was out with Alyssa this morning, furniture browsing, as we need a new kitchen table before we put the house on the market. We went to one store and found a couple of options. On our way to the second store, I passed a big yellow sign that read "STORE CLOSING", and I did a double-take. Yes, the Toys 'R Us in Plano off 75 Central Expressway is closing and moving to Allen, just a few miles up the road.
I decided to U-turn back and see what they were giving away. I was not prepared for any shopping, so I had left all gift cards at home. I always go into sales like this with my eyes open to look at the actual "regular" prices, and many times, they mark things UP in order to mark them down.
Most things were still fairly expensive for a store closing, so we casually walked around. I had Alyssa on my hip one thing in my hands... then two things... then three things... a lady asked if she could get me a cart. I politely turned her down because we were about done... then 4 things... then I got a cart...
There were some good deals, and with Alyssa's birthday fast approaching, I didn't even feel quilty that my giftcards were at home.
Anyway, get to the Toys 'R Us in Plano. They expect to close their doors by October 10.
