Retail Apocalypse for who?

1: The US has been 'over' stored, with more retail square footage per capita by far than any other nation. Even with all the closures we still are.

2: I mean I do feel bad for all those buggy whip manufacturers, but wow have you seen how fast those new-fangled automobiles go?!?

3: It's tough competing with Walmart.com and Target.com and Amazon.com, but hey, at least I don't have Toy's R Us, Kaybee, and Radio Shack to kick me around anymore☺

4: As an etailer with multiple toy stores online only, brick and mortar's closures mean more sales for me. My kids gotta eat too.

The bottom line is that in 2019 it's no longer an 'Us' vs. 'Them' world anymore. Almost every brick and mortar toy seller has an online presence, including most of the toy manufacturers. The American Retail / Etail industry, including it's 'Toy' subset is slicing away some fat. We'll all be healthier for it in the end.
