Toys R Us Closing Springfield, MA Store, All US Locations

Toy giant Toys R Us just announced the chain will be closing all of the company’s 735 stores, including the location on Boston Road in Springfield, MA. The seventy-year-old company filed for bankruptcy last September, as it struggled with $5 billion in debt.  The Toys R Us closing continues a trend of other major retailers shuttering their doors as online shopping has picked up. Carolee McGrath sat down with Rick Sullivan, the president of the Economic Development Council of Western Massachusetts to learn more.
