WATERLOO (KWWL) -

The Toys R Us store in Waterloo will close at the end of January.

Store employees confirmed the closure over the phone Friday afternoon.  The closing is planned for the end of January 2015.

Alyssa Peera, with the company's corporate communications says the closing is due to the sale of the property.

In an email, Peera says, "We've enjoyed serving the Waterloo community for many years. We continue to operate a number of stores throughout the state of Iowa, including a Toys“R”Us/Babies“R”Us store located at 2425 Wiley Blvd. in Cedar Rapids, and customers can also shop 24 hours a day on www.Toysrus.com and www.Babiesrus.com."

No word yet on who bought the property or what will happen to the building.
