4 Toys ‘R’ Us Stores to Close on Long Island


Four of the 11 Toys ‘R Us locations on Long Island are among about 180 nationwide that are slated to close by April, the company reportedly disclosed in court documents.

The closures of a fifth of the company’s stores comes as the popular toy retailer is restructuring its finances in bankruptcy court while it contends with about $8 billion in debt.

The local stores slated to close include locations on Sunrise Highway in Sayville, on Corporate Drive in Westbury, on Veterans Memorial Highway in Commack and on Sunrise Highway in Massapequa.

The New Jersey-based toy store chain was founded in Washington, D.C. in 1948 and now has nearly 900 stores nationwide.
