If you google "haunted Toys "R" Us," you'll come across a story about a Toys "R" Us in Sunnyvale, California that is haunted. Many people in Northern California who have an interest in ghost sightings are aware of this, but not everyone is aware of what happens if you google "haunted Toys "R" Us Oregon." If you type this, the first web site you will come across is an excerpt from "theshadowlands.net" about a Toys "R" Us located at 1133 Valley River Drive, in Eugene, Oregon.
Some local residents who live in Eugene have heard that the Toys "R" Us on the West side of town is haunted but not many people know exactly what goes on behind closed... stockroom doors? In a recent visit to the famed toy store a few employees elaborated on the rumors circulating about ghostly happenings surrounding this Toys R' Us in Eugene. One member stated that "you would be surprised how many people come around looking to find things out." This employee having been with the company for over five years made it clear that some things in the stockroom often do seem out of the ordinary "as if your being watched, or see something from the corner of your eye." Another employee stated that "employees often use a partner" when retrieving items for customers in the stockroom.
While looking to gain information several employees simply stated that they were not allowed to talk about it, or "you can talk to the manager." It turns out that according to another tenured employee, "corporate is concerned with providing a "family friendly environment," turning away popular television shows trying to capitalize on the strange phenomena that might make it appear otherwise. But even more insightful than an employee talking about objects falling from the stockroom loft, or toys making noise at night when the lights go off, were the estranged employees whom refused to elaborate. The obvious concern expressed by innocent inquiry only magnified a curiosity felt when staring at the tiny blurred windows in the back on the green stockroom doors. Fixated for minutes, hoping to see something, the desire to go further dissipated abruptly when asked, "do you need help finding something?" Unfortunately at this time the answer is yes, but the question concerning what exactly goes on in the stock room when all doors are locked and the store is closed, only few can answer.
