With the holiday season just about to get underway, Toys R Us says its stores will remain open for business as usual.

Toys R Us announced the bankruptcy protection earlier this week. The company said court-supervised proceedings will help restructure its debts and set the stage for long-term growth. Toys R Us emphasized that its stores worldwide will remain open and that it will continue to work with suppliers and sell merchandise.
