The founder of Toys R Us has passed at age 94

His name is Charles Lazarus, the man who founded the iconic toy store which is getting ready to liquidate after 4 decades has passed away at the age of 94. Charles Lazarus, the founder of Toys R Us, passed a week after the company announced it will be forced to shut down its U.S. operations. 

 

He started the company in 1948 when he was 25, anticipating that the post-war baby boom would create demand for baby supplies and toys. He remained CEO until 1994. I think it's safe to say most of us have either heard of Toys R Us, or have had personal experiences with one.

 I remember as a little kid being bribed with the latest action hero figure if I did well in school because for me Toys R Us was like the holy grail of stores. RIP to a great man who impacted kids and and the world alike. More on this here.
