Toys R Us/Babies R Us in Cobb was set to close, but will now stay open

After being first slotted to close, the combination Toys R Us/Babies R Us on Cobb Parkway will live on.

The company announced in late January that it planned to shutter a fifth of its 880 American stores, including eight in Georgia.

But the Smyrna store was not among those in an updated list released Wednesday.
