Since the rise of mass merchants like Walmart, Target and Amazon, however, Toys "R" Us has lost much of its share of the toy market, and fell behind Walmart in toy sales for 1998.[22]

To improve the company, the board of directors installed John Eyler (formerly of FAO Schwarz). Eyler launched an unsuccessful, expensive plan to remodel and re-launch the chain. Blaming market pressures (primarily competition from Walmart and Target), Toys "R" Us considered splitting its toy and baby businesses.....wiki

They had major problems before the online shopping boom began and before other big-box chains started stealing market share. Those problems were a big reason why they lost market share.
