Toys R Us' online sales were only 7% of their total revenue and they have a lot more competition online I believe which is why these words were coming out of his mouth.

What a load of shite. It's obvious to anyone with even half a brain that online shopping is much more environmentally friendly than brick and mortar stores. Like an order of magnitude more friendly.

By that thought what's the difference in carbon footprint, of amazon shipping the goods to their warehouse, then UPS to my home compared to Toys R Us shipping the item through their distribution system to the store, then hundreds of consumers driving to the store in their SUV to pick up an item that may or may not be available then driving to another store, or a third.

Think I'll stick with online shopping and save myself time and frustration.

There is no difference. He's just desperately grabbing at a straw man in an effort to prop up his rapidly failing business model.

Yeah, exactly. That TRU guy is being silly. If you're in even a mildly dense area, you're going to gain efficiency by having one guy deliver all that stuff than everyone going to the store and coming back. And make no mistake: UPS and FedEx (and even the USPS) are incredibly efficient in their routes. TRU needs to make an online site and offer free shipping.
