Toys R Us to close all U.S. stores: report

Posted: Updated:

Toys R Us has told all employees it plans to liquidate all U.S. operations after weak holiday sales.

The Washington Post reports as many as 33,000 employees face layoffs after the chain failed to regain stable financial footing following a bankruptcy filing in September. The Wall Street Journal is also reporting that employees were notified remaining outlets will be sold or closed. 

Toys R Us has stores at Peoria's Westlake Shopping Center and on Empire Street in Bloomington.
