Toys "R" Us Is Closing U.S. Stores After Filing for Bankruptcy

Goodbye, sweet childhood.

Famous American toy retailer Toys “R” Us is closing 20-percent of its 180 stores across the United States. This comes after the company filed for bankruptcy in early September 2017, and is an attempt to recover from its $5 billion USD debt.

The conglomerate plans to merge its in-store experience with that of Babies “R” Us and reduce the company’s inventory overall.
