Unfortunately, another one bites the dust. A popular Hudson’s Bay in Toronto is closing its doors in the next few months.
The Hudson’s Bay located at 44 Bloor Street East will shutter on May 31, after operating for almost 50 years.
According to an HBC spokesperson, Tiffany Bourré, the Hudson’s Bay Queen Street flagship is located so close to the Bloor Street one, that it makes sense to close it down.
On the other hand, CityNews reported that HBC actually had quite a bit of rent payment issues during the lockdown with a handful of its stores.
This could also be a major reason that led to the decision of closing.
Hopefully, this isn’t a sign of what has to come for other Hudson’s Bay stores in the future, as taking a browse around the department store is always a great shopping trip.
If you can make it out to the location before the closing date, it might be worth it in case of any large blowout sales!
