It's good to know their not all closing down. My daughter loves that store! I did notice a few weeks ago the one off 290 closed down but the one near my house, Willowbrook area, is still open.


Baby Aidan Michael was born September 28th weighing in at 8 lbs & 15 oz.

His big sister, Jordan Marie is 10 years old. She weighed in at 9 lb & 10 oz!

Hi JL I am in Houston and no it is not out of business. They did close a few stores however, there is one out in ClearLake and one out in Sugarland. The one off of the Southwest Frwy has closed however even though on-line it still lists them. Hope that helps. I drove out to the one in clearLake after Almeda Mall but before the mall in Clear Lake off 45, it is amazing!

In Houston's paper last week there was an article that Toys R Us can't compete with stores like Wal-Mart and that they are going to focus on their Babies R Us stores as that has become their money market. Didn't read the article myself but a co-worker told me about this.

The way I understand it is they are going to drop TRU after the holidays. It is due to pricing in discount stores. I have not heard anything about BRU so I would assume they are to remain open.

Yes, they are getting rid of TRU bc Walfart and Target are killing them on the toy sales. They also want to focus on BRU, which is profitable. What definitely went out of business was Kids R Us.

what i heard on the news was, the Toys R Us company is considering switching to just Babies R Us, since it is the most popular, no decision will be made until after the holiday season. the reason they are considering going out of the toy business is because of places like Target and Wal-mart, which sell toys at a low price.

I can not believe they are going out of business. I have not heard anything like that. They are owned by Toys R Us... It would be big news if it was true. Plus even if the file bankruptcy they would stay open.. look atthe airlines and the phone companies they are all still in business. If Worldcom can screw all of their employees and stockholders I think Babies R Us can keep their doors open. I say register!

I went there to start shopping around for my baby registry and a friend told me not to register there because they were going out of business.
I cant believe that! They seem so busy.
