Toys R Us in Newbury Park is holding an “everything must go” sale after the firm went into administration last week (Wednesday, February 28).

The shop on Horns Road has knocked up to 25per cent off the shelf price as restructuring company Moorfields winds down their operations.

A Toys R Us spokeswoman said: “Everything in the store has been reduced and has to go, including new stock arriving this week as the warehouses are cleared.

“You can find great discounts across all ranges, including some of the biggest toy brands, and stock levels are high, so there is plenty of choice.

“Customers are advised to take advantage of the heavy discounts as soon as possible, as weekend sales in other stores across the country indicate that some of the most popular ranges may sell out fast.”

The spokeswoman added that there are also big discounts on cots and car seats in the Babies R Us range.

Residents who have outstanding gift cards have until Sunday, March 11 to use them and customers who have previously used the Take Time to Pay Agreement will also have to settle outstanding balances by this date,

Alternatively, shoppers can use their deposits towards the cost of any in-store purchases.

Unopened good can also be exchanged by the end of the weekend as long as they are in a resalable condition and have a valid proof of purchase.

The company, however, can no longer accept returns for refunds.

This does not affect Customers’ Statutory Rights with regards to faulty merchandise.

As a result of going into administration, around 3,200 staff across the UK face redundancy following the collapse of the 100-store chain.
