Here’s today’s daily dose of sweetness.
Toys ‘R’ Us is no more. The remaining stores closed on Friday night.
In Raleigh, N.C., when people moved in at one store to get some last-minute deals, there wasn’t much left. Someone has beaten them to the goods, and bought everything left in the store for $1 million.
He/she/it wants them to go to needy children, a local TV station reported.
Nobody in charge is identifying the mystery buyer.
About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
