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.

The company filed a motion on January 23 to close up to 182 of its 880 stores.
