    The problem for Toysrus and Maplin are that most of their stores were never on the High Street.

    and charged way above prices.

    I could buy Dashcams from Halfords cheaper than Maplin.

    They would charge like £150 for gaming keyboards you could get for £70-80 elsewhere.

    Was only a matter of time for Maplin.

    Whilst it might be fair to say both Toys R Us and Maplin have failed to keep up with the ever changing Retail scene it's the employees and suppliers I feel sorry for.
