YES- coming from a person that put TRU in the toilet

Thanks Richard - as always, you have created an intriguing conversation and one that I feel needs comment, as I'm sure others will as well. I've never met Mr. Storch but I'm confident that he is a highly intelligent businessman. From these comments, it just appears that he is out-of-touch with the average US consumer...a pattern perhaps?

Jerry should be a bit more sensitive and also think about the subject from a 360’ perspective. Of course at some point the consumer will see higher prices and if you buy clothes, toys, lap tops and a ton of other product you will pay more and given the average American has less than $500 in the bank!

Jerry for Christ sake coming off the collapse of your old company, Toys R Us last year, think about the companies that depend upon making goods in China like toys. We are the ones that have to eat the tariffs and take the hit to the bottom lines. Easy to sit on the sidelines. Get back in the game and you will see who this really hurts. If you were back in retail you would be talking out of the other side of your mouth on this subject.
