Toys R Us’ falling sales are the latest in a string of dismal results from companies that have relied heavily on brick-and-mortar locations, as consumers increasingly shift their shopping to online retailers like Amazon.

They have an online shopping choice too.
Amazon seem to have cornered the market for discount prices though.
This is a consequence of the lower standard of living for the general public, a need to cut down spending wherever possible.

Their out dated business model was heavily bricks and mortar based. They did not innovate their online presence enough to counteract their outdated stores.

Spending is highest it has ever been. Not saying that is good or bad.

I agree they were on the back foot with their online presence.
It's a shame the stores are closing though, it's a new era for online goods.
Soon we won't need to leave our homes at all. :yikes:

Not good is it?

Well its already not good if the only thing you leave your house for is shopping. Those of us who enjoy leaving the house for myriad of other things are quite pleased as it frees up more time to do those things.

Innovations like working your staff to the grind so much that they are carried out in Ambulances

CHrist Almighty - you and Canny really are sad if you remember this from Xmas 2016! :hand:

You will be pleased to know I have not been to any Xmas markets this year, last year was a one off.

I have bought most stuff online this year and a few bits locally and I live nowhere near Bury St Edmunds.

I doubt that they would risk a General Strike because that is what they will get if they try it.
