This is disappointing. But I can't remember the last time I went there . . . maybe 2 years ago? After it was remodeled, it was a totally different store than when it opened. But it was always a place where anything you could buy there, you could buy cheaper somewhere else.

The Vegas one isn't the only one to close. The last time I was in Chicago (during Thanksgiving), I found out that the Chicago FAO Schwartz closed also! Soooo sad.... :sad1:

Now the word is an H&M store is moving into the space where FAO was. So, if you're into shopping, it's another destination for you.

I'm not sure but FAO may of gone bankrupt wether of not Toys R US bought the name and close the stores only leaving NY and LV open but closed LV last year. If you think about it is LV a good spot for a toy store?
