A Delaware bankruptcy judge on Thursday authorized KB Toys to begin going-out-of-business sales.
Judge Kevin Carey granted the company's request after attorneys said they had resolved several concerns of landlords and creditors about rent and other issues.
The Pittsfield, Mass.-based company plans to start liquidation sales Friday, with a targeted end date of Feb. 9.
"I can see no better, other alternative," the judge said. "We're at a time of year where unless the going-out-of-business sales go forward now, there's hardly any sense in doing it."
