Toys ‘R’ Us, which sells plenty of PCs here in the UK, has been accused of bullying tactics by a woman who owns a sausage company in Wallasey, Merseyside. According to a report in The Guardian, Theresa Heward, who was running a sausage shop called Sausages R Us, received a letter from Toys ‘R’ Us solicitors, ordering her to refrain from using the name. The report said that her customers were now calling Toys ‘R’ Us, Bullies R Us. She said the company’s solicitors told her that it was “highly likely” that the toy company’s success was the reason she called her banger shop Sausages R Us. Mrs Heward said she was shocked by the letter because she wanted to convey the idea that the only function of her shop was to sell bangers. She said the name of the shop doesn’t use the letter R back to front and has no apostrophes.
