We reported in January that Toys ‘R’ Us announced the closure of 182 stores across the US. On Wednesday, Toys ‘R’ Us shared the news with its employees it will close or sell off all of its remaining stores, reports Nashville Business Journal. 

“I have always believed that this brand and this business should exist in the U.S.,” chief executive David Brandon said on conference call with staff.

The 70-year-old toy store has 33,000 employees who could potentially lose their job in the coming months.

There is one Toys R Us in Williamson County at 1735 Galleria Blvd and two others in the Middle Tennessee area, at 327 Opry Mills Drive and 2075 Old Fort Parkway.

It was previously announced that Babies ‘R’ Us on Nolensville Pike would also close.
