Toys R Us is holding fire sales at 25 UK stores — here’s where to grab a bargain

We were sad to hear that Toys R Us is closing 25 branches across the United Kingdom this spring, as the retail giant battles to stay afloat.

Having one less place to pick up video games and gadgets is certainly of detriment to British high streets and retail parks, already bereft of options compared to the halcyon days.

However, at least the stores intend to go out with a bang, with closing down sales at each of the soon-to-be-departed locations.

The fire sale offers up to 30% off everything in store, but you’ll have to go along to your nearest condemned  branch to see what’s available. The company has made no announcements of any individual offers as yet.

It’s unlikely that the marquee items will be heavily discounted at this stage, so you can probably forget about picking up a cheap Nintendo Switch. However, there are still likely to be some bargains on offer.

Branches in Cardiff, Leicester, York, Shrewsbury, Aberdeen, Belfast, Birmingham and Watford are among those shifting stock.

As is often the case with these fire sales, the 30% off view is likely to be an opening gambit from the firm with discounts likely to broaden as the closure approaches.
