Toys R Us

The Toys R Us store in Queensbury last week was placed on a list of stores that will likely close. However, the store announced in recent days that it will remain open under terms of a renegotiated lease.

QUEENSBURY — The Toys R Us in Queensbury has been removed from the company’s official store closure list.

A corporate official said Tuesday that the store was removed pending successful renegotiations on a lease.

The store manager, Don Cameron, had said Monday that the store was staying open, but deferred further comment to headquarters. The store employs about 25 employees, both full-time and part-time.

The store was one of 182 on a list released last week of possible closures as the company is in bankruptcy. The Queensbury store was on the list based upon store performance, the local market and overall financial condition.

Company officials had said last week they were hoping to negotiate some better leases to allow some of the stores to stay open.

The number of stores on the list had been reduced to 168 as of Tuesday afternoon. font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; font-size: 12px;”>Michael Goot covers the city of Glens Falls, town and village of Lake George and other northern Warren County communities.
