Toys R Us closing 76th and Dodge Streets store

In the Money Talks blog, The World-Herald shares the latest in Nebraska business and development, with behind-the-scenes notes from our Money team. Read more and join the conversation.

The Toys R Us at 76th and Dodge Streets will close at the end of January.

A spokeswoman said the company decided not to renew the store's lease, which expires next month, and it will close by Jan. 26. She knew of no immediate plans to relocate the store.

“We've enjoyed serving the Omaha community for many years and will gladly keep you posted should our future plans include a new store opening in your area,” the spokeswoman said.

Toys R Us in mid-December reported a third-quarter net loss of $605 million and a 4.5 percent drop in net sales. Company officials said they expanded store hours leading up to Christmas in an effort to boost fourth-quarter results.

The 76th and Dodge store is currently in the liquidation process. Items purchased during the sale cannot be returned.

Toys R Us also has stores at 3435 Oakview Drive in Omaha and 3145 Manawa Center Drive in Council Bluffs.
