Well...umm...Toys R Us is back I guess.  No auction.

 Sounds fishy to me, the same hedge fund operators that wanted the stores closed and liquidated now want them back?

I had read some other articles, lots of talk about how valuable the brand name is, makes me think they are just stalling so they can get more cash for the names and trademarks.

They have no physical stuff to reopen, stock was liquidated, and I'm pretty sure all the stores were sold in August.  Hard to believe they are going to buy/build new stores and fill them with new inventory.

Fun Fact: If you google "Florida Man" followed by your birthday, you will get a ridiculous headline of some sort. (Occasionally a few legit sad/disturbing ones too, but a LOT of weirdness.)
