Toys R Us closures impact central Arkansas

Staff Writer

Toys R Us officials recently filed court documents stating that the company would close 182 stores as part of a bankruptcy reorganization plan.

The Babies R Us location at 2616 S. Shackleford Road is one store that has been slated to close, according to reports.

Officials mentioned that some stores listed may not close if they are able to negotiate more favorable lease agreements.
Going-out-of-business sales are scheduled to take place from February until April.

The reinvention of our brands requires that we make tough decisions about our priorities and focus," said Toys R Us Chief Executive Dave Brandon in a letter posted on the company's website Tuesday.

Along with closing stores, the company also plans to convert some locations into combined Toys R Us and Babies R Us stores.
