DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - Toys R Us stores in Texas and across the country opened for the last time this morning. The company is going out of business.

Outside a store in North Dallas, people started lining up outside about an hour before the store opened. One woman was looking through the window to see how much merchandise was still inside.

"It's gonna be terrible," she said. "Where are you going to go now for toys?"

Most of the store was empty and roped off.

One woman brought her daughter, saying she shopped at Toys R Us while she was growing up.​ Her daughter said she could buy the same things on Amazon, but even she realized shopping online is imperfect.

"Online, it could say you're getting a red ball, but then it turns out to be an orange ball," the girl said. "You don't always get what you always wanted."

Toys R Us had 735 stores across the country, including 65 in Texas.
