WAYNE -

Wayne-based Toys ‘R’ Us will close its remaining 200 U.S. stores on Friday.

The toy retailer filed for bankruptcy back in September in hopes of turning around, but terrible Christmas sales left the company on life support.

The chain had 735 U.S. stores when it announced plans to go out of business in March.

The 70-year old company will continue in some other countries, such as Canada.
