Toys ‘R’ Us is closing down.

After filing for bankruptcy back in September, Toys ‘R’ Us is closing down. All 735 of its remaining locations will be shutting down, leaving 31,000 workers unemployed. The shift towards online shopping and electronic games lowered Toys ‘R’ Us’s income, increasing their debt. Eventually, they ran out of money, causing them to shut down all of their shops.

“We’re actually seeing a competitive job market in retail that really is unprecedented,” said Portell. “You have workers choosing between employer A and employer A. Toys “R” Us didn’t have the financial ability to offer that kind of competitive package.”
