LUTON, ENGLAND - SEPTEMBER 19: Customers walk towards a branch of the toy store Toys R Us on September 19, 2017 in Luton, England. The company has struggled to compete against online traders such as Amazon and has announced that it has filed for bankruptcy protection in the US and Canada. The company has stressed that these actions do not expect any immediate impact on their European branches due to the company running the operations independently. (Photo by Leon Neal/Getty Images)
Toys R Us won bankruptcy court approval Tuesday to begin going-out-of-business sales at roughly 170 stores across the U.S., according to USA Today.
Sales could begin as early as Wednesday according to a plan put forth by the company.
