    The news of US retailer Toys R Us financial woes in America and the latest UK fallout, has resulted in rumour of the Copdock Ipswich Toys R Us store in London Road (IP8 3TT) closing. With a weakening brand, internet competition, supermarkets, Argos same day delivery and Smyths Toy Stores, it could well be a difficult trading period this Christmas.

    However, the above map of Toys R Us stores in the UK, shows only a few stores in this region - Ipswich, Norwich and Cambridge. I would be surprised if they would close these stores as part of the 28 closing in the spring 2018. Distance between stores won't really be a priority, I am sure trading performance and overheads would be taken more into account. It is amazing they survived this long, thought they would have gone before Woolworths!

    Update: Ipswich Toys R Us doesn't currently appear on the list of planned closures (as expected).
