Toys R Us could close another 200 stores

Toys R Us could close another 200 stores, in addition to up to 182 closures announced last month, according to a report by the Wall Street Journal.

The first round of closures included a location in Dover, Delaware. Another location in Newark hasn’t showed up on the list of possible closures, though the details of this latest batch are still unknown.

If all the closures end up happening, Toys R Us will have reduced its total number of stores by roughly 50 percent.

The retail giant filed for bankruptcy in September of 2017. The closures are part of a wider effort to shrink the company down to survive in a competitive market dominated by online retail.
