    Toys R Us Hopes to Emerge From Bankruptcy

    A look at what the Toys R Us bankruptcy means for customers.

    (Published Tuesday, Sept. 19, 2017)

    Toys R Us is planning to close up to 182 stores across the United States as part of its bankruptcy reorganization plans.

    The Wayne, New Jersey-based retailer filed court papers late Tuesday outlining its plans to close 20 percent of its stores in the coming months. Going-out-of-business sales are slated to begin in February with closures continuing through mid-April, Toys R Us Chief Executive Dave Brandon said in a letter posted on the company's website Tuesday night.

    In addition to closing stores, the company intends to convert a number of locations into combined Toys R Us and Babies R Us stores. The closures still need court approval.

    The company, which filed for bankruptcy protection in September, cited increased competition and a shift in customers moving away from traditional brick-and-mortar stores to shopping online for the decision to shutter the stores. 

    "The reinvention of our brands requires that we make tough decisions about our priorities and focus," Brandon said.

    The company noted that some closings may be avoided if it is able to negotiate more favorable lease terms. But most of the stores listed in the documents are expected to close as Toys R Us tries to reinvent itself as a leaner, smarter retailer.
