ToysRUs is shutting down US stores. Here is how to get your hands on toy deals.

It's official. ToysRUs is closing all stores in the United States, winding down US operations. There is still a slight chance that 200 TRU stores remain open via a deal that attaches these stores to a Canadian owned company.

Update: On March 20, the bankruptcy court made the path clear for ToysRUs to begin the liquidation sales at stores. The ToysRUs and BabiesRUs store closing sales begin on March 22.

In a press release issued on March 15, ToysRUs announced to start the process of conducting an orderly wind-down of its U.S. business and liquidation of inventory in all 735 remaining ToysRUs U.S. stores, including stores in Puerto Rico. ToysRUs will provide more details about the plans for the liquidation of its U.S. stores and going-out-of-business sales in the near term.

We expect that the ToysRUs Store closing sales could begin as early as this weekend. The ToysRUs store closing sales in the UK began basically right after the company announced the bankruptcy filing. Keeping stores open costs the debtor's money each day. Therefore closing sales will be planned to begin as early as possible.

The ToysRUs store closing deals will be up to 30% depending on the product category. Popular toy brands like Lego will be on sale with much lower discounts. In the UK, deal hunters can only save 15% on construction toys including Lego. The ToysRUs liquidation sale is going to be a hot opportunity to save on toys, but it's not a Black Friday.

Shoppers need to do their research and still compare the store closing prices with offers online at amazon.com and other stores. There is a chance that the store closing discounts are going to be higher in the United States than in the UK. As mentioned above, the details have not yet been announced.

The store closing deals will not be aggressive in the beginning. The sale is expected to last about two months. Popular high-value items like the Nintendo Switch will likely be moved on the warehouse level. The discounts will be the deepest at the end, but the selection of toys will then be limited.

Deal hunters also need to keep in mind that closing sale purchases are final and there is no return option. As the ToysRUs Holiday sales have been already very low, the closing sale at ToysRUs is not very likely to be that popular.

You can apparently find deals on Apple products at ToysRUs closing sales. As a bunch of ToysRUs stores are already closing down since weeks, there are some references to the deals you can find. A redditor posted that he got an Apple TV 4 for $75, and an iPod Nano for $54 at his local ToysRUs store that is closing down. ToysRUs only carries a few Apple products.

To find ToysRUs store locations, use the online store search. We also expect that the closing sale will be also in some form be available online at toysrus.com.

We will provide the details of the ToysRUs Store Closing Sale as soon as they are announced. If you still have ToysRUs gift cards, use them as soon as possible.
