Many national media outlets have reported recently on the struggles of the New Jersey based Toys R Us,Inc. . The company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection back in September so we assumed it was only a matter of time before we saw a store closure announcement. That announcement unfortunately came overnight last night.
Toys R Us will close a total of 182 stores in both their Toys R Us and Babies R Us branded stores. Locally only of their 2 local stores will close, the store set to close is-
Babies R Us 6104 N. Division in North Spokane
The Toys R Us store at Broadway and Sullivan in Spokane Valley will stay open for business. Going out of business sales are to begin next month and stores on the list will likely close their doors sometime in April. No word on how many employees will be laid off as a result of the local store closure.
Stores in Everett and Silverdale,WA are also included on the store closure list but none in Idaho.
