You might be bummed that the Toys“R”Us in your neighborhood is closing up shop, but for every dark cloud there’s always a silver lining—and that lining is a huge sale. Starting now, all the Toys”R”Us stores going out-of-business are having a mega sale you won’t want to miss.

It’s only February, but if you love getting your Christmas shopping done early, then there’s no time like the present to stock up on toys. In January, Toys“R”Us announced the closure of nearly 200 stores across the country and now you can reap the rewards with some giant going-out-of-business sales.

The store closures will begin in mid-February and continue through April, which means that now is the best time to hit your local Toys“R”Us to score a great deal before they close their doors for good.

In a statement, the company CEO David Brandon promised customers deep discounts at closing locations as they work to save the struggling company. Losing a place your kids love to shop isn’t a win, but snapping up a few discounted items will definitely help.

Still not sure if your local Toys”R”Us store is closing? Check here.
