News Alert!!: United States of America: Goodbye Toys “R” Us and Babies “R” Us stores.

Toys “R” Us and Babies “R” Us is permanently closing all of their stores across the United States of America on Friday, June 29th, 2018.

The company, which also owned the Babies “R” Us chain, announced in March 2018 that all stores would close after 70 years in business, and had been slashing prices leading up to the final closing.

Since March 2018, a liquidate or going out of business sale has been going on at their stores, the company is advertising 50-70 percent off everything in their stores.

The liquidate or going out of business sale at Toys “R” Us and Babies “R” Us stories ends today.

Low sales in recent years led to the closing of several Toys “R” Us stores, including the iconic flagship Toys “R” Us store in Times Square.

The company filed for bankruptcy in 2017, and in March 2018, the company announced that all 740 Toys “R” Us stores in the United States would be closing.

The closing of Toys “R” Us has been attributed to a poor holiday sales performance, a shift to more play time on mobile devices and competition from online and discount stores.

As the last of the Toys “R” Us stores close, more than 30,000 workers will be looking for work.

Goodbye Toys “R” Us and Babies “R” Us, we will never forget the joy you brought us all growing us. You may be gone, but we’ll never stop being a “Toys R Us kid”.
