For many, shopping at the Toys 'R' Us store in Huntington Station has been part of the holiday agenda for decades — but it all ends Monday.
Store officials confirmed to Patch that the retail giant is moving out.
"We are closing, that is correct," said Rob, a store manager who did not disclose his last name. "We are starting liquidation Monday. When we close? We will not know the exact date on that."
According to one source, the store is being forced to close Jan. 25 due to the inability to reach an agreement with the present landlord. The manager at the store could not confirm the report.
"I can refer you to media relations and they can give you that information," said Rob.
Located at 350 Route 110 in Huntington Station, the toy store has been a fixture in the community for many years.
"Toys R Us has been in this community for approximately 30 years," said one regular customer in an e-mail to Patch. "Many families are now second-generation Toys 'R' Us kids and will certainly miss the events and the shopping experience that Toys 'R' Us strives to provide for our community."
