Sign on door of Toys R Us in Greenville (FOX Carolina/ March 22, 2018)

Signs went up outside Toys ‘R’ Us stores Thursday morning announcing that the liquidation sales had been postponed.

A sign was placed on the door to the Woodruff Road store in Greenville just after 8 a.m.

It read: "Due to circumstances beyond our Team Member's control, all liquidation sales have been postponed until further notice. We are sorry for any inconvenience."

Signs had not been placed outside the Spartanburg or Anderson stores when our crews checked there, however, a worker at the Anderson location said the liquidation sale had been postponed.

A company spokesman said in an e-mail that the company expects the sales to begin on Friday.

"We expected that liquidation sales would start today, but they were delayed due to unforeseen circumstances. They’ll likely start tomorrow," said Joseph Contrino.

The company initially announced that liquidation sales would begin Thursday and end in June.

The toy store chain is in the process of closing all US stores.

Some stores will close as early as April.
