"You used to get a phone call and they, he would sing happy birthday to them, so yeah, that part of it will be sad".

The liquidation sales started Friday, and the company said it will offer shoppers "deep discounts and promotions". There are three other Toys R Us stores in Arkansas - in Little Rock, North Little Rock and Fayetteville.
