Billionaire Bids $890 Million To Save Toys “R” Us From Bankruptcy

Earlier in April, Toys “R” Us announced all of its US locations were going out of business, but now an American billionaire is stepping in to help save the fate of the brand.

Isaac Larian, CEO of the toy company MGA Entertainment, bid $890 million for more than 300 Toys “R” Us stores in the US and Canada, according to Business Insider.

Taking to LinkedIn, Larian revealed his investment by writing “OK. I followed through on my part. Now it’s up to them to accept. Time is of the essence.” Larian also put up a number of tweets with the hashtag #savetoysRus, even tagging Donald Trump while saying “I want to save over 130,000 jobs.”

#savetoysrus . Not sure about the “Tycoon” title. I’m just a simple man who started as a dishwasher in this great country and lived the American dream. I want to save over 130,000 jobs. @realDonaldTrump https://t.co/lmsqaymncv
