Many Toys R Us stores in California are among those offering deep discounts as the toy and baby products retail chain prepares to shutter about 20 percent of its locations nationwide.

The move follows a slump in the New Jersey-based company's holiday sales and a bankruptcy filing.

Going-out-business sales are expected to last through April in at least 170 U.S. locations, several of which are in Southern California.

Meanwhile, Toys R Us officials say the privately held retailer is reinventing its brand and restructuring to ease its ballooning debt.

Below is a list of stores that are set to close in Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino and Riverside counties:

-Indio, 42500 Jackson St.

-Simi Valley, 1189 Simi Town Center Way

-Santa Clarita, 26573 Carl Boyer Drive

-Covina, 960 Lakes Drive

-Puente Hills, 1600 S. Azusa Ave.

-Brea, 2575 E. Imperial Highway

-Westminster, 530 Westminster Mall

-Torrance, 20120 Hawthorne Boulevard

-Riverside, 2550 Canyon Springs Parkway

-Santa Ana, 3900 Bristol St.

-Corona, 3665 Grand Oaks
