Toys R Us has launched a fire sale after falling into voluntary administration just months after the US and UK retail giant’s collapse.

The company operates 44 retail stores across Australia and employs about 700 permanent staff.

No employee positions are affected by the appointment, the spokesman said.

There has never been a better time to score massive savings on children’s products and toys with scooters for just $20 from $25, $150 slashed off car seats and 25 per cent off Lego, reports Daily Mail.

Savings range from 20 – 60 per cent, with a number of ‘buy one get one free’ deals.

Directors of the company resolved to appoint voluntary administrators McGrathNicol after the withdrawal of the final bidder for the sale of the Australian business, a McGrathNicol spokesman said in a statement on Monday.

Toys ‘R’ Us Australia will no longer offer refunds, and gift cards and vouchers will only be honoured if customers spent an additional equivalent amount.

Online orders and lay-bys will be delivered or honoured where goods had been paid for in full and the stock was available.

  • I knew this was happening, was getting emails about it, and still missed it! Got as far as checking out the reduced items but not to buying any. Gosh darn it

  • Hardly ever went there as found it was far too expensive for me.

  • I used to live in Brisbane, but am now in Tassie. I purchased my first pram from there on sale, but typically found them expensive unless they were having a good sale. I guess the online shopping world has pushed them out of the market.

  • I would only go to Toys R Us once in a while, I found them a bit pricey.

  • This did not take long to happen, following the US situation. I’m not sure how this does not affect any of its employees. Another big business bites the dust. A shame really.

  • A bit harsh for gift card holders and lay-by customers.

  • My husband goes regularly with the kids to Toys R Us. They have a wider assortment then many other shops, but are indeed not the cheapest.

  • I’ve always found even with a sale I can get cheaper elsewhere. May try out this one though to see.

  • Sucks that we don’t have one in tassie. Wonder if the deals will be online as well?
