Toys ‘R’ Us is closing 182 stores nationwide

Did your store get voted out?

Remember when you didn’t want to grow up and be a Toys ‘R’ Us kid? Sadly, those days are ending for 182 areas. Toys ‘R’ Us asked the federal bankruptcy court in Richmond, Virginia for permission to close the stores, saying it has “faced a challenging commercial environment,” made worse by consumers preferring to shop online rather than visit brick and mortar stores. This amount equals to one fifth of its U.S. store fleet. The closures are scheduled to begin in early February and end in April. Despite filing for the closures, Toys ‘R’ Us says it plans to keep 1,600 stores and its online shop well-stocked.

Toys 'R' Us is closing 182 stores nationwide

This is sad to read as I have been going to Toys ‘R’ Us ever since I can remember. In fact, I work near one of the stores that is slated to close. I visit at least once a week to see if there is anything new that I would like to add to my many collections. I will admit when I visit the store, it’s usually empty. Christmas time was a madhouse, though, to the point there were some days I just drove past because I didn’t want to attempt to fight the crowds. Even though it is expected for Toys ‘R’ Us to be busy at Christmas time, I thought this was a sign of hope that Toys ‘R’ Us will slowly bounce back, but that doesn’t appear to be the case.
