Why did toys r. us close?


1 Answer

Toys R Us declared bankruptcy after struggling with a heavy load of debt caused by a buyout in 2005, including competition from Amazon, Target and Walmart. The company owed more than $5 billion. Even as it went bankrupt, the original Toys R Us accounted for about a fifth of toy sales in the U.S.
