Toys R Us filed for bankruptcy protection in 2017 (see link). In 2018, it went bankrupt. In the US, that meant that 800 stores closed (see link). In Europe, however, the Toys R Us stores in Germany, Austria and Switzerland were sold to Smyth's Toy Superstores (see link). Now, those Toys R Us stores are being rebranded under the Smyth's brand.
