Toys "R" Us plans to close another 200 stores and layoff a significant portion of its corporate staff, a report says.

The Wall Street Journal reports the closings come after disappointing holiday sales.

The bankrupt retailer had already announced plans to close about 180 locations, including one in the Houston area.
