Nearly 100 jobs to go in Toys R Us distribution hub closure

NPD: Toys “R” Us closures will not tank the industry

However, Toys "R" Us' decision to close its doors inspired him to follow the pop-up idea.

Jobs for about 33,000 employees are in jeopardy, but Toys R Us is planning to hire for temporary positions for the liquidation process.

Toys R Us hopes to start liquidations sales at most of its USA stores on Thursday and complete those sales by the end of June. It soon ballooned into one of the country's biggest toy retailers.




KB Toys went out of business in 2009 and Toys R Us acquired the brand, according to CNBC. At that point, the stores will close for good, though the company is working on a package deal to sell its Canadian operations that could keep up to 200 profitable United States stores open.

Are you already missing Toys "R" Us? The company filed for bankruptcy last week, confirming that all 700 or so of its retail stores would be shut down, even after it announced earlier this year that it would be attempting to keep some of the locations open. With majority of their 3000+ stores located in malls, the teen jewelry company has been suffering from a decline in traffic in shopping malls. Its downfall had been blamed on a heavy debt load and relentless trends that undercut its business model, from online shopping to mobile games. The sales will start of on the lower end, around 25 percent, with an increase in discount happening in the coming weeks.

The closure of the 92 Claire's stores will not trigger a massive sale of their merchandise, but with Toys-R-Us liquidating all of their stores, massive sales will be taking place. Kids are still playing with toys, Lennett said, and parents will look to other retailers to purchase them.
