From Geoffrey to Kids R Us: Toys R Us through the years

Closing down signs are seen outside the Toys R Us store in Coventry Britain

Toy store giant Toys R Us has made plans to sell or close all 800 of its USA stores, according to multiple reports.

Toys "R" Us Inc. told employees that they plan to sell or close all their USA stores.

A month later, the company reportedly planned to shutter another 200 stores, which would have left Toys R Us with 400 USA locations-about half the total from a year earlier.

"Consumers aren't turning to a store like Toys "R" Us for convenience", he said, "because that's something that a Walmart or an Amazon or a Target can do online".

The Toys R Us closing down sale has started.

In the weeks that followed that announcement, reports from sources about the retailers situation got progressively worse, with insiders saying that vendors were not being paid and that employees were anxious the company couldn't met its payroll.
