Toys R Us is reportedly planning to close another 200 stores, as well as lay off a "significant portion" of corporate workers. Soon after, it announced that it would close up to 182 stores, or up to one-fifth of the company's total number of US retail locations.

The new store closings would be on top of those previously announced.

Holdener, who was almost three seconds down on Vonn after the downhill, skied into the gold medal position on her slalom descent. Lindsey Vonn made a mistake early in the slalom and didn't finish in what's likely her final Winter Games.

New Jersey-based Toys R Us announced that it had filed for bankruptcy protections on January 23.

To go along with the report of Toys R Us closing more stores is talk about what it plans to do with its employees. Locations in Albany, Clay, Clifton Park, Hamburg, New Hartford, Johnson City and Rochester were spared. It filed for bankruptcy in September 2017, and executives have said they plan to emerge as a more modern retailer before the next holiday shopping season. Toys R Us did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment.
