The company, which entered administration in February 2018, sold 26 stores under a Company Voluntary Arrangement before announcing the “wind-down” of the chain, resulting in 3,000 job loses.

The final 24 Toys R Us stores were put up for sale in May 2019 following a legal dispute between entities owned by Tim Knowles and CBRE Loan Servicing. Knowles won permission to sell the properties, starting with the Croydon unit, which fetched £16.1m.
