Toys "R" Us attracted speculation over its liquidation after the company filed for bankruptcy protection last September.

Toy store chain Toys R Us is planning to sell or close all 800 of its USA stores, affecting as many as 33,000 jobs as the company winds down its operations after six decades, according to a source familiar with the matter.

This saddled Toys R Us with an astronomical amount of debt - over $5 billion worth - that the company hadn't shaken even a decade later.

While Target does not report its toy sales separately, Reuters cited a marketing executive as saying a lack of other strong toy sellers most likely helped Target keep its "loyalists" away from Toys R Us. Customers with gift cards are unsecured creditors, Davidoff explained.

According to the statement, liquidation sales will take place over the next few months as the company begins clearing shelves at both Toys R Us and Babies R Us stores.

Schumer wrote that the company should honor gift cards particularly after it gave its customers "the "all clear" during the all-important holiday season. The quarter accounts for 40 percent of its annual net sales. However, Raina believes other stores, like Walmart, will not have the space to carry the extensive in-store inventory that Toys R Us now has.

Mattel's overall sales during the fourth quarter (i.e, Christmas) fell 12% from a year ago, led by big drops for the Fisher-Price, American Girl and Lego competitor Mega Bloks brands.

"Bad but not fatal", Muller said.

-1996: Babies R Us is born, selling diapers, cribs and auto seats.

Toys" R " Us, Inc. confirmed Wednesday night that it's closing all Toys" R " Us and Babies" R " Us stores in the USA, giving up on restructuring efforts after losing the confidence of lenders and customers. In September 2017, the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, but assured customers they would continue to operate as usual, keeping all stores and online shopping open for business.

The company is reportedly looking for a plan to save roughly 200 stores if it is able to find a buyer.

All 800 Toys "R" Us stores in the United States are closing, including a store in Corpus Christi that opened to great fanfare in 1986. With the USA division's recent statement that all stores will close, up to 33,000 jobs will be affected.

Despite the threat of 30,000 job losses, experts do not expect retail employment and wages to be subdued in the near term.
