Here we are at one of the newest TRU locations in the Houston area. This store was built in 2008 as a replacement of another store on the other side of Willowbrook Mall. I visited this store in the week prior to the official liquidation announcement. As you will see, shelves were already beginning to empty out but the store was very neat and clean. At this point rumors of the chain liquidating were already beginning to circulate so the trip to the store had a feeling of sadness.
