Unless there's a last - minute save from Santa Claus, Toys R Us stores everywhere will close for good in June.

This gentleman is trying to save Toys R Us from fiscal doom and preserve the store as an experience for future generations. It's not likely he's going to succeed, which means all Toys R Us stores still open, including ours here in Lafayette, will close this June. Here are some great businesses that should take up home in the soon - to - be old Toys R Us building. All of these businesses are among those most wanted in Lafayette by visitors to Developing Lafayette's wishlist.
