Toys R Us shut down its US websites on Friday, just two weeks after announcing that it would be liquidating its US business.

The company posted a message on its Toys R Us and Babies R Us websites Friday saying, in part, “We have shut down the website for any purchases but our brick and mortar stores are open and holding going out of business sales.”

The message directed customers to stay up to date with the sales at a goodbyetoysrus.com.

“We encourage you to stop by your local store and take full advantage of hte deep discounts and deals available,” the message continued. “Thank you for your business and support over the years.”

Customers with outstanding gift cards at Toys R Us will now have to visit stores to use the value on their cards, which will expire in two weeks.
