Toys R Us Will Not Reopen In Biloxi

A major toy store will not re-open in Biloxi. Toys-R-Us at Edgewater Village was heavily damaged and has been closed since Katrina.

A spokeswoman says the company conducted a review of its stores across the country and decided to close 73 stores, including the Biloxi location. She says the decision was made for business reasons.

The Biloxi store opened in 1989. No word yet on what will happen to the building.

One of two Toys-R-Us stores in Jackson will also shut down.
