Makes us very sad to have to report on this, but here are the dates that the final 75 Toys ‘R’ Us UK stores will close….
Toys R Us administrators Moorfields have confirmed the closure dates of the final Toys R Us stores in the UK.
The remaining 75 Toys R Us and Babies R Us stores in the UK are to close by Tuesday, April 24th 2018. All 2,054 employees have been informed and will be paid up to and including their last day of employment.
Stores will continue to trade as normal up until the dates listed below and the nationwide stock discounting programme has been extended further. Discounts of up to 70 per cent are available throughout the stores, with all bikes, car seats, strollers and action figures currently on offer at half-price. Further ‘Manager’s Specials’ deals are available on selected products in stores.
“We are grateful for the hard work of everybody at Toys “R” Us’ during this extremely difficult and challenging time,” said Simon Thomas, joint administrator and partner at Moorfields. “We are working closely with the 2,000 employees affected by the closures to ensure they receive the support they need for redundancy and other compensatory payments.”
“The stores across the county will be open as usual until the last day of trading and we would encourage shoppers to make the most of the great deals on offer. Extended discounts of up to 70% are in place from today and offers are available on some of our best-known brands.”
