Is a Savior in Sight for Toys “R” Us?

Jim Fosina, CEO of Fosina Marketing Group, comments in this The Street article Is a Savior in Sight for Toys “R” Us? – Sources weigh in on whether Amazon could save the toy chain.

“It is highly unlikely that Amazon would be interested in the overhead issues that the Toys ‘R’ Us business will place on the company,” he wrote in an email statement. The fact that it’s closing will help Amazon, he added, because more customers will “begin doing all their shopping online.”

 “Expect that Amazon will expand their inventory in the area of toys around peak buying season online to capture that ‘lost’ Toys ‘R’ Us customers.”
