Toys ‘R’ Us will close for good this week
The end is finally here for Toys "R" Us stores in the United States.
The iconic toy retailer will close its final 200 US stores on Friday.
Toys "R" Us filed for bankruptcy in September in hopes of turning around. But terrible Christmas sales left it on life support. The chain had 735 US stores when it announced plans to go out of business in March.
The 70-year old company will continue in some other countries, such as Canada.
Shoppers will find deep discounts but little in the way of merchandise on the shelves of the remaining stores Some of the stores now open won't make it all the way to Friday's deadline.
On Monday Party City announced it would use 50 of the locations for its seasonal "pop up" stores, and expand from its traditional Halloween City stores to offer Toy City stores that will stay open through the holiday season this year.
