There's only one location of Buy Buy Baby in Wisconsin located in Brookfield, and that will also be closing in the upcoming weeks.

Brick-and-mortar locations are still open, but not for long

On their company website, Buy Buy Baby left of message for their loyal customers saying, "We have made the difficult decision to begin winding down our operations."

For those who may have set up a registry with Buy Buy Baby or have gift cards for the store, the online store will remain open for the foreseeable future.

The company officially filed for bankruptcy on April 23rd, 2023; along with their online store, all 360 physical locations across the US and Canada will be liquidating their inventories and eventually closing permanently
