It has been a rough few months for retailer Toys R Us and Babies R Us. The company will be closing 182 stores across the country starting in February and ending in April. Fourteen of those stores will be in New England.
Going out of business sales will begin in the coming weeks. This means toy and clothing sales for people in the area looking to get great deals.
The closest stores to our area are located at The Shoppes At Blackstone Valley, 70 Worcester Providence Turnpike in Millbury, 217 Hartford Avenue in Bellingham, Shoppers World on 1 Worcester Road in Framingham and 300 Quaker Lane in Warwick, RI.
So far, the combined Toys R Us/Babies R Us on Route 12 in Auburn should remain open.
The company filed for bankruptcy protection in September has been trying to re-invent their stores into more of an online shopping atmosphere as more brick and mortar stores are closing.
