CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Babies "R" Us is planning to close 20 percent of its stores in the United States by early 2018.
The children's retailer declared for bankruptcy in Sept. 2017 and is now planning to shutdown as many as 182 outlets across the country.
According to USA Today, four stores in Ohio are slated to close, including the Mentor location on Mentor Avenue.
The other three locations are in Western Hills, Dayton, and Dublin.
The closures will begin in early February and are scheduled to be completed by mid-April 2018, says CEO Dave Brandon in a statement released to customers.
There are currently about 1,600 stores in the world, about half of which are in the United States.
Editor's note: An earlier version of this story said Toys "R" Us was closing in Mentor. It was changed to Babies "R" Us. Cleveland 19 News regrets the error.
