The iconic, 70-year-old toy store filed for bankruptcy in March and has spent the past several months liquidating its assets. All 700 stores across the country were scheduled to close their doors for good on Friday, laying off thousands of employees.

However, after the secret shopper cleaned out the toy store in Raleigh this week, workers showed up Friday to pack up what was left of the store’s inventory for the anonymous do-gooder.
