Toys R Us has kicked off a huge closing down sale, with savings of up to 30%.

25 stores will be closing in the spring, although no set date has been announced, as part of a deal to save the retailer.

Prices in the stores that are closing have been dropped in a bid to shift stock- but stores that are remaining open will not have the discounts.

Deals include cut prices on toys, car seats, bikes, and on Babies R Us stock.

Prices have also been slashed online as part of a clearance sale there- so if your local shop is staying open, you won’t miss out on the great bargains.

It is one of many British retailers that have struggled to pull profits recently, as consumers favour shopping online.

Steve Knights, managing director of Toys R Us UK, said, “Like many UK retailers in today’s market environment, we need to transform our business so that we have a platform that can better meet customer’s evolving needs.”

Existing Toys R Us stores will be getting a makeover in 2018.

It’s planning on turning the locations staying open into smaller interactive stores, in an attempt to modernise the brand.

It claims its’ warehouse style stores that opened in the 1980s and 1990s are now too big and expensive to run in the current retail environment.
