Will Toys 'R' Us stick around in Canada? And other questions, answered

Toys 'R' Us plans holiday hires including toy demonstrators

Mr Brandon said plans to restructure its debt pile would "provide us with greater financial flexibility to invest in our business, continue to improve the customer experience in our physical stores and online, and strengthen our competitive position in an increasingly challenging and rapidly changing retail marketplace worldwide".

With its filing under Chapter 11 of the USA bankruptcy laws late Monday, Toys R Us remains open but is protected from creditors' claims while it works out a court-supervised reorganization plan.

Toys "R" Us will also offer shoppers more stores that combine its flagship brand for kids of all ages with the infant- and toddler-focused Babies "R" Us, Brandon said. Toys "R" Us had been hobbled by more than $5 billion in debt, which required over $400 million a year to service. In 2005, taking the company private, Bain Capital, KKR & Co., and Vornado Realty Trust loaded it with $7.5 billion in borrowing, and the company has been hamstrung ever since.

Prior to filing, the chain secured more than $3bn in financing from lenders including a JPMorgan-led bank syndicate and certain existing lenders to fund operations while it restructures, according to a company statement.

The company could exit bankruptcy through a public offering of its shares or by a traditional reorganization in which creditors convert their debt to equity, he said.

BBC reported that a U.S. bankruptcy judge approved a loan of more than $2bn to help stabilise the toy chain so that Toys "R" Us would have time and money to prepare for the upcoming Christmas shopping season. If Toys "R" Us can emerge from bankruptcy with less debt plus money to reinvest in its business, the process could mark a turning point.

Muller said the company's sales cost for the last quarter is around $3 billion, making it the nation's second-largest toy retailer, following Amazon.com, Inc.

European Union warns Ryanair on cancellation reimbursement, compensation
Low-priced airline Norwegian has poached a chunk of pilots from the Irish airline since the start of the year, it emerged today. At present, Ryanair have posted every single flight that has been cancelled and here they are on a day-to-day basis.

The post Is Toys R Us Closing?

"Will Toys R Us be around for Christmas in 2018?" It hasn't worked. Neither have its big bets on licensed toys from movies like "Star Wars" and "Lego", as the Wall Street Journal noted.

Toys "R" Us Inc.is the biggest USA toy store chain and it has lodged for bankruptcy indemnity.

One way for the company to adapt would be to have "interactive and experiential" stores, with more opportunities for children and parents to test and play with products. If you're totally anxious about the company's prospects, there are lots of places to buy toys and be confident you can return them after the winter holiday if your niece really wanted a stuffed tiger instead of a giraffe. Sales of fidget spinners, a toy that has become ubiquitous in the past year, got twirling online first.
