Toys R Us may have been gone but never forgotten. When ours Toys R Us first came to the Yakima Valley in the mid-late 90's it was a dream come true for many of us. Especially those of us who grew up watching cartoons on KSTW Channel 11 based out of the Seattle/Tacoma area that would often not only run commercials for Toys R Us but also feature those shopping spree contests...
We all know that 2020 has provided some major challenges and it doesn't appear to be showing much sign of slowing down.
