Toys R Us built a kingdom and the world's biggest toy store. Then, they lost it.

The toy emporium that Charles P. Lazarus envisioned has been reduced to dusty floors and empty shelves.

Much has been said about the demise of the toy empire, which this week announced its plan to liquidate. There have been fingers pointed at corporate raiders, Amazon and big-box stores. All contributed to its undoing.

Ultimately, though, Toys R Us’ collapse is a story of loyalty run dry. The store in its early days fostered devotion from customers and toymakers. In the end, it lost hold on both.

Toys R Us’ status as the most important toy store in town left it cavalier, if cocky at times, according to conversations with former employees, executives and industry insiders, who spoke to CNBC on the condition of anonymity. It didn’t invest in its stores, even as it was adding to the fleet, leaving it vulnerable when new competition moved in.

The story begins with Lazarus, the store’s visionary who wanted the “R” written backward — an ode to childlike scrawl. Lazarus, who has been described as one of the great merchants of his time, expanded a baby furniture store he owned into a toy store. By 1978, he had created a toy superstore large enough to become a public company.

In its heyday in the 1980s and 1990s, it was the most important toy store in the country, if not the world. Its strength grew as competitors Kiddie City and Child World went out of business.

Amazon launches online store featuring 'Shark Tank' products

Call it a match made in entrepreneurs heaven.

Amazon announced on Monday that it has partnered with “Shark Tank” to feature products made by the entrepreneurs featured on the hit show.

“For the first time ever, ‘Shark Tank’ has a store on Amazon.com dedicated to helping our entrepreneurs scale their businesses and highlight top products from the show,” says Barbara Corcoran, one of the investors on the popular show, in a statement released Monday. “We are excited for the Amazon Launchpad Shark Tank Collection to bring products from our entrepreneurs to retail for customers and fans of the series.”

The Amazon Launchpad Shark Tank Collection launched with 70 products that were successfully funded on the first nine seasons of the show. Products for sale include the Hatch Baby (a smart baby-changing pad), Third Wave Water (a mineral supplement intended to enhance the taste of coffee) and Stasher (a reusable silicon food bag).

“Our first big break as a company came with ‘Shark Tank.’ It got us the attention we needed to attract a wide audience,” says Ann Weiss, CEO of Hatch Baby, in a statement released Monday. “Working with Amazon Launchpad feels like our second big break. We’re lucky to work with a team that understands the unique challenges facing entrepreneurs and who specifically supports and provides us with what we need to grow our business.”

Any entrepreneurs who have received investments from the Sharks will be considered for inclusion in the program. Those whose products are included in the collection will receive a $15,000 credit for Amazon Web Services, which provides cloud-computing services.

Disclaimer: CNBC owns the exclusive off-network cable rights to “Shark Tank.”

Timeline: The rise and fall of Sears

Sears Holdings is on the verge of filing for bankruptcy after 125 years in business, closing a chapter in the company’s long-and-storied history.

Sears was the Amazon of the 1930s. Here’s where the retailer is today 4:00 PM ET Fri, 18 May 2018 | 03:17

Sears Holdings, once the biggest retailer in the country, is on the verge of filing for bankruptcy after 125 years in business.

The decline of one of America’s most recognizable home brands has been decades in the making and marked by a series of missteps that could have changed the course of the company had they been averted.

The department store chain, led by hedge fund manager and CEO Eddie Lampert, has steadily been shrinking its assets over the years as its lost sales to Walmart, Target, Home Depot, Amazon and other competitors for its signature appliances and “Softer Side of Sears” apparel.

CNBC looks at five things that caused Sears to fail in recent years.

There is no price announced for the yacht.

The yacht isn’t the only “lifestyle” approach for the car brand. Lexus expanded its lifestyle concept by opening a store in New York City’s Meatpacking District in August. “Intersect by Lexus,” a 16,500-square-foot shop where people can “experience the carmaker’s brand without setting foot inside a car,” according to Bloomberg, is the third lifestyle store by Lexus. (Locations opened in Tokyo and Dubai in 2015.)

Remodeled Domino’s location sells nearly 8,500 pizzas, breaks company sales record

A recently remodeled Domino’s in Texas sold nearly 8,500 pizzas during its grand opening week, breaking a company sales record, according to a Texas-based NBC affiliate.

JC Penney taps former Joann Stores chief Jill Soltau as its CEO, sending shares up more than 10%

J.C. Penney said Tuesday that Jill Soltau, the former CEO of Joann Stores, will take the helm of the struggling department store chain, sending shares up more than 10 percent in extended trading.

Soltau will fill the position Oct. 15 and will also become a member of the retailer’s board of directors. The news comes after the departure of Marvin Ellison, who now serves as CEO of home improvement retailer Lowe’s. Penney has been searching for Ellison’s replacement since he abruptly announced his exit in May. The department store chain also lost its CFO, Jeffrey Davis, earlier this week.

Penney’s shares rose more than 10 percent in after-hours trading to $1.73.

While the department store sector in the U.S. is under increasing pressure as shoppers’ purchases shift online, Penney has struggled more than some of its peers, including Macy’s and Nordstrom. In the latest quarter ended Aug. 4, Penney lowered its outlook for the full year, as it continued to grapple with an overhang of too much inventory.

The hope, now, is that Soltau will be able to help turn things around.

“Jill stood out from the start among an incredibly strong slate of candidates,” Paul Brown, Penney board director and chairman of the CEO search committee, said in prepared remarks.

I shopped at Amazon's new 4-star-product store in New York City — here's why I wouldn't do it again

It had been open less than an hour when I arrived around 10:45 a.m., and it was already filled with curious shoppers. I wandered through the brightly lit aisles that felt like a display for Amazon’s top-selling products, one where you can actually pick them up and touch them instead of just seeing them online, which is a brick-and-mortar perk.

Items were separated in categories like “Devices and Electronics,” “Travel Essentials” and “Games and Puzzles,” but also themed sections like “Most Wished For,” “Hot Right Now,” “Quirky Kitchen Gifts” and “Top Selling in N.Y.C.,” which had items like a Nutribullet, a blender and nutrient extractor, and a Black & Decker portable vacuum.

As a fan of Amazon.com and an Amazon Prime member, I was eager to see what they were selling. But unfortunately, for me, “Top Selling” didn’t necessarily translate to cool or interesting. Many of the products seemed to be things you could just as easily find at Target or Walmart.

There were exceptions though, and a favorite for me was probably the Smart Home Devices section. It had products like a WiFi light bulb that’s brightness and even color can be controlled via Smartphone. (A quick Google later revealed Best Buy and others sell similar bulbs, but I had never seen them before.)

JC Penney shares crater 10% after CFO's exit leaves a gaping hole in retailer's C-Suite

J.C. Penney shares plunged Friday, a day after the department store chain announced the departure of CFO Jeffrey Davis to pursue other opportunities, creating another gaping hole in the retailer’s C-Suite.

The stock skidded 10 percent Friday morning. It has lost more than 50 percent of its value over the past 12 months and now trades around $1.56, giving the company a market cap of about $491 million.

Davis’ departure, effective Monday, follows the exit of Marvin Ellison as CEO earlier this year to go to Lowe’s. Penney’s chief customer officer, Joe McFarland, quit the company this summer to follow Ellison to the North Carolina-based home improvement retailer.

Penney has been searching for a replacement for Ellison since May. When he left, Penney created an “Office of the CEO” consisting of Davis, McFarland, Chief Digital Officer Therace Risch and Mike Robbins, executive vice president of supply chain. Now, only two of them are still at the company.

“While there have been some recent green shoots in the company’s business trends, including the recovery in the women’s apparel business, success in Sephora and continued strength in active, [Penney] is in need of more consistency in its performance,” Telsey Advisory Group analyst Dana Telsey said in a research note.

She said Davis’ departure only “creates another overhang (in addition to the CEO vacancy) to the J.C. Penney story.”

While the department store sector as a whole is considered to be under increasing pressure, Penney has struggled more than some of its peers, like Macy’s and Nordstrom. In the latest quarter, Penney lowered its outlook for the full year, as it continued to grapple with an overhang of too much inventory.

As Penney looks for Davis’ replacement, the company said Jerry Murray, a senior vice president of finance, will serve as interim CFO.
