In court papers filed earlier this week, the retailer proposed “a new, operating Toys ‘R’ Us and Babies ‘R’ Us branding company that maintains existing global license agreements and can invest in and create new, domestic, retail operating businesses.” ___ Global investment firm KKR, and private equity firm Bain Capital have agreed to contribute a combined $20 million to Toys “R” Us employees that had been fired.
