Toys R Us could close more stores

By  | 

(NBC News Channel) - Toys R Us is reportedly weighing the option of closing at least 100 stores.

Toys R Usfiled for chapter eleven bankruptcy protection back in September.

Bloomberg reports the pioneering big box retailer is now considering closing stores in the face of weak holiday sales which are down about 15% from last year.

The prospect of store closures could deal another blow to Toys R Us's biggest suppliers -- Hasbro and Mattel -- which have already blamed Toys R Us' bankruptcy for hurting their results.
