Euclid Square Mall Toys R Us: 10 Years Later

I have got to hand it to whomever designed the original brown roof, rainbow-striped building, because it looks as good now as it did 10 years ago.

Even the paint on the "wooden" planks hasn't aged that badly. Toys R Us in Euclid opened in September 1988, and closed in 2002.

Toys R Us owned the property from 1988 until 2006. They sold it to MCM Don Fisher Manor Apartments, LTD in 2006 for $600,000.

In September 2014, it was sheriff deeded to Lakeview Holding (OH) llc., then sold to SNS Properties llc. in February 2015 for $125,000.

I think it would be nifty to own an old Toys R Us but I don't know if it'd be $125k nifty...

At any rate I know the place was used for overflow (furniture) storage in the last decade. In 2012, Euclid schools held an auction there. The pictures suck hard, but I snagged one where you can truly appreciate that inside, it still looks like a Toys R Us, too.
