Closing down sale begins at Lincoln Toys R Us

Closing down sale.

‘Closing down’ posters have been hoisted up at the Lincoln Toy R Us store at St Marks.

The national toy retailer fell into administration last week with the chain admitting it has been affected by lower consumer spending, inflation and online competition. 

Questions were raised over the future of the Lincoln store, which sits on a site outlined for redevelopment. 

The shop is now hosting a closing down sale, with signs reading ‘everything must go’.

It is not clear at the time of writing if and when a closing date has been decided, as week as how many jobs would be affected.

The Lincolnite contacted administrators Moorfields, but the company’s marketing team could not confirm a closing date for the store.
