The toys will reportedly be donated to local children, according to employees who work at the store.  Instead of opening the store one last time on Friday, employees spent the day packing up boxes and putting them on a truck for the generous person.  Customers looking to get some last minute deals were greeted with locked doors, though some didn't seem to mind upon hearing the news.  “Oh, that’s so nice. I’m happy to hear that,” Erin Sampson told CBS 17. “That’s great. I’d like to know who it is,” said Danyel Smith. It's unclear when or how the purchased toys will be distributed to the kids.
