Toys R Us in the UK has increased the discount available on select lines to 50% off the original price, with reduction on LEGO remaining at 15%.
All of the UK based Toys R Us stores are expected to close within the next few weeks, with the retailer using discounts of between 15% and 50% to sell off the remaining stock.
Those looking for cheap LEGO sets will still only be able to save 15% off the original price, while those in the market for Christmas items will get 50% off the original price. The full list of discounts, confirming which percentage applies to which product category, can be found at the Toys R Us website.
Toys R Us has proven beyond saving despite efforts being made over the past six months to keep the chain going. A rescue package confirmed last October involved closing a quarter of the retailer’s UK stores, but the company did not trade well enough over Christmas to meet VAT obligations. Over 3,000 jobs will be lost when the retailer closes.
