Toys R Us have today confirmed the date it will close its last remaining shops, including its Banbury branch in the Castle Quay shopping centre.

Toys R Us, which has 105 stores across the UK, went into administration after failing to find a buyer for the company as a going concern.

Nationally, 3,000 jobs are set to be lost.

The Banbury branch will close for the final time on Friday, April 20.

Joint administrators Simon Thomas and Arron Kendall of Moorfields Advisory, said: “Following the failure to attract a buyer for the business prior to administration, the Joint Administrators are conducting an orderly wind-down of the company’s store portfolio.”

The toy store will no longer be able to accept returns for refunds and gift cards, too, are no longer being accepted.

Stores are currently offering discounts of up to 70 per cent on remaining products.

A full list of the shops and their closing dates can be found on the company’s website.
