Toys "R" Us announced it is closing almost 180 stores across the USA, accounting for one-fifth of its retail footprint, CNBC reported.

Two more Toys R Us locations in Texas are on the list of closures, one in Katy and another in El Paso.

Toys R Us filed for bankruptcy in September. None of the company's 83 Canadian stores is targeted for closure. The Toys R Us stores in Clifton Park and Colonie are not included.

That will result in around 180 total stores, with around half of those being Babies "R" Us stores.

The Toys R Us located along Route 35 in the borough is amongst the company's announced closures.

Two other Toys "R" Us locations are closing in Ohio: Mentor and Dublin; Lexington and St. Mathews in Kentucky and Indianapolis in IN, the records shows. As of a year ago, the chain had 1,691 company-owned stores.

Toys "R" Us is planning on closing almost 200 stores as part of a restructuring plan the company hopes will help lift it from bankruptcy.

The toy industry has been hampered by lower sales for the past few quarters in the face of growing demand for other forms of entertainment, including video games, MP3 players, tablets, smartphones and other electronic devices. "You can't find that on Amazon", he said.

The struggles of Toys R Us have rippled outward and rumors continue to swirl around the possibility of a merger between Mattel and Hasbro, the nation's largest toy makers.

Small-format toy stores, like Mastermind Toys in Canada, are eating into Toys "R" Us sales. Shares of Mattel Inc. fell while Hasbro Inc.'s stock was up in afternoon trading.
