If you have a Toys R Us gift card, you might want to spend it up VERY quickly.

According to an article on usatoday.com, those gift cards will only be good for the next 30 days following the retailer’s liquidation announcement. They’ve been honoring gift cards since their bankruptcy announcement in September, but, as the article bluntly states “the end is near”. After 30 days, those gift cards are going to be worthless.

This comes on the heels of the announcement that ALL Toys R Us stores will be closing in the near future. The closest Toys R Us locations to our region are in Springfield (Illinois), St. Peters (Missouri), and Chesterfield (Missouri). And of course, you can redeem your gift cards online.
