Sears has been in trouble over the past couple years, and now they’ve been forced to do something about plunging stocks. They announced today that they would be seeking court protections from creditors and plans to cut 2,900 jobs across the country. That includes closing 59 locations.
In Ottawa/Gatineau we have 5 locations, either Home stores or full service department stores, and two of them will be closing.
Both the Hull department store and the Ottawa East Home store on Innes will be closing.
The outlet store in Cornwall and the full service store in Brockville will also close.
Expect liquidation sales to start soon! See below for a full list of store closures.
