Another Needham Street retailer in trouble

Posted December 16, 2008 08:39 AM

There was another shivering man holding another brightly colored sign trumpeting bargains on Needham Street over the weekend.

This time the sign is touting deep discounts at KB Toys, which filed for bankruptcy last week and plans to close its stores. An employee at the Needham Street outlet said they would close Jan. 31.

KB Toys joins Tweeter and Linens N Things in the roster of closing retailers with a Needham Street store.

As the Globe's Steven Syre wrote, "You know the economy stinks when a toy store goes bankrupt during the Christmas season.''
