2 Toys R Us stores set to close in Iowa

Toys R Us will begin going-out-of-business sales in February at two stores in Iowa slated to close in April.

The closures include:

  • 1211 E. Army Post Rd., S. Des Moines 
  • 8801 University Ave., Des Moines 
In all, the company, which filed for bankruptcy in September, will close 20 percent of its stores, which amounts to 182 locations scattered across the country.

"The reinvention of our brands requires that we make tough decisions about our priorities and focus," Toys R Us CEO David Brandon said in a memo to customers in January. "The actions we are taking are necessary to give us the best chance to emerge from our bankruptcy proceedings as a more viable and competitive company.
