On March 15, 2018, Toys“R”Us announced plans to shut down its operations in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. All Toys“R”Us and Babies“R”Us locations have started liquidation sales effective Friday, March 23. We are pursuing what is called a “going concern” reorganization and a sale process to find buyers that will continue to run our Canadian business and operations in Asia and Central Europe, including Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Our other international operations in Australia, France, Poland, Portugal and Spain are considering their options in light of this announcement, including potential sale processes in their respective markets.
As we continue the liquidation process, we’re still hiring for various roles within our stores and distribution centers including sales and stock associates, cashiers and warehouse team members. Please apply at www.ruscareers.com.
Over the past three decades, the company has given more than $100 million in product donations to children’s charities. Since 1992, the Toys“R”Us Children’s Fund, a 501(c)(3) organization and the company’s charitable arm, has also donated more than $130 million in grants. For more information, visit Toysrusinc.com.
On behalf of all of us, thank you for your support and business over the years. – Weniger
