FORT WAYNE, N.J. - 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.

-Indio, 42500 Jackson St.
