According to multiple reports, a big announcement could come down Tuesday from Toys "R" Us regarding shutting down all stores if there isn't a last-minute save to bail them out.

The toy store giant and its companion stores Babies "R" Us could all shut down by this week, according to published reports.

In January, the company announced a growing list of stores slated to close after the retailer entered bankruptcy last year.

"We heard initially they were closing some of the stores, and now we're hearing they're closing all of the stores so sales are even higher," said Mary Mancini, of Downingtown.

At stores that have announced that they are closing, there are deep discounts. But shoppers said there are also restrictions.

"They said with liquidation, they can't do any returns or exchanges," Mancini said.

Maybe they should have grown up.
