Toys R Us jump starts closures, begins liquidation sales

Select Toys "R" Us stores across the United States began offering sales Wednesday amid the liquidation of over 140 stores.

The toy chain announced last month that it planned to close 182 stores, about one-fifth of its USA locations.

We called and found out they're starting with 10% off on everything, except food and diapers.

Koeman appointed coach of struggling Netherlands
The former Everton manager's first opponents will be England in a friendly at the Johan Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam on 23rd March. The appointment of the ex-Netherlands worldwide was announced by the country's football association (KNVB) on Tuesday.

Chain officials say Toys R Us will move to focusing more on online sales and the in-store shopping experience.

Most of the stores scheduled to close are expected to shut down in mid-April, Toys R Us said. As part of its restructuring, he added, some Toys "R" Us and Babies "R" Us stores will be converted to co-branded stores to better compete against other retailers.

The original number of shuttered stores was set at 182, according to a court filing from late January, but the complete list as of Wednesday's press release contains about 30 fewer.
