Sears Canada closing forever
October 11, 2017
It is the end of an era.
Sears Canada has announced that it is shutting down operations nation-wide.
The company announced yesterday that it plans to seek court approval to liquidate all of its remaining stores and assets.
That would mean closing 130 store, putting 12 thousand people out of work.
It will also kill plans for call centre jobs in this province.
Sears officials say that once they get court approval, liquidation sales would begin around Oct. 19th and last for 10 to 14 weeks.
