Ryan Madigan’s sign-off at the toy chain’s Lake Grove location has been viewed more than 111,000 times since Toys R Us closed for the final time after 70 years in business.
"For one last time, we are closed!" Madigan says into the loudspeaker at the Long Island store. “I wanna also thank each and every one of my co-workers and managers for being the best staff I've ever worked with, and being more than just co-workers and managers. They are a second family that I have come to work with every day and love ever since.
“With that being said, we will not be open tomorrow morning at 10 a.m. As always have a wonderful night."
"I was surprised by (Toys R Us') closing, and was very upset about the fact that so many people I care about and know we’re losing their jobs," Madigan told WNBC. "I’ll miss it, but I knew I had to leave eventually since I’m approaching my final year of college."
