After filing for bankruptcy protection last summer, it comes as no surprise that the toy retailer Toys ‘R’ Us is shutting down a huge number of stores, 180 stores to be exact. On Monday night, Toys ‘R’ Us asked federal bankruptcy court in Richmond, Virginia for permission to close the stores, saying that they have “faced a challenging commercial environment.”

The company has suffered enormous debt, $5 billion in pre- bankruptcy, followed by years of weak sales due to the major increase in Amazon, Target, and Walmart, which have all proven to make their toy offerings more enticing to the public. In a memo to the staff, Toys ‘R’ Us CEO Dave Brandon said the holiday season had been “very challenging,” according to Bloomberg News.

Through their first three quarters of this fiscal year, the chain had a net loss of $862 million. The closures are set to begin in February and conclude by April. More than half of the locations will be Babies ‘R’ Us stores.
