GNC Files for Bankruptcy


Health and nutrition retailer GNC has filed for bankruptcy in the U.S. and announced that it will close at least 29 stores in Canada as part of its restructuring. The locations of the stores that will close are:

  • Erin Mills Town Centre
  • Markham Town Centre
  • Cf Masonville Place
  • Willowbrook S.C.
  • Brentwood Towne Centre
  • Westside Market Village
  • Marlborough Mall
  • Bonnie Doon S.C.
  • Georgian Mall
  • Markham Steeles Sc
  • Dawson Mall
  • Colussus Centre
  • Cataraqui Town Center
  • St Claire & Runnymede Rd
  • Eagle Landing Sc
  • Smartcentres Corner Brook
  • Laurier Quebec
  • Morningside Crossing
  • Creekside Crossing
  • Williamsburg Tc
  • New Sudbury Centre
  • Brandon Shoppers
  • Mayfair Shopping Centre
  • Sevenoaks Shopping Centre
  • Bower Place
  • Lynden Park Mall
  • Queensborough Landing
  • Galeries Rive Nord
  • Shawnessy Town Centre

GNC said: Our business has been under financial pressure for the past several years as we have worked to pay down debt and reposition GNC to be more competitive in a challenging operating environment. We were making significant progress and were focused on refinancing the business to allow us to position ourselves for long-term growth. However, the COVID-19 pandemic created a situation where we were unable to accomplish our refinancing and the abrupt change in the operating environment had a dramatic negative impact on our business.

As a result, we felt the best opportunity for us to continue to improve our capital structure and address certain operational issues was to restructure through a Chapter 11 reorganization. This gives us the opportunity to improve our balance sheet while continuing to advance our business strategy, right-size our corporate store portfolio, and strengthen our brands to protect the long-term sustainability of our company.

Over the past year, GNC has been executing a store portfolio optimization strategy to close underperforming stores, while doubling down on our omni-channel and brand strategies to better meet consumer demand. We believe that our strategy is sound, and the success we’ve seen thus far makes us confident we’re moving our business in the right direction. The Chapter 11 process will allow us to accelerate these strategies and invest in the appropriate areas to evolve in the future, while improving our capital structure and balance sheet.

As part of our restructuring, we expect to accelerate the closure of at least 800 to 1,200 stores in our portfolio, many of which were previously announced with the process underway. By doing so, we will be exiting unfavourable lease terms burdening our business more quickly and shifting resources to our standalone store locations where we are seeing significantly more consumer foot traffic. We will communicate specific updates around potential closures as we progress in the Chapter 11 process. While select corporate stores will eventually close, we encourage you to seek out one of our other store locations in your area. Please note that even closing stores may remain open for a period of time.


Microsoft to Close All Stores in Canada


Microsoft announced a strategic change in its retail operations, including closing Microsoft Store physical locations. Microsoft will continue to sell their products online.

The company’s retail team members will continue to serve customers from Microsoft corporate facilities and remotely providing sales, training, and support. Microsoft will continue to invest in its digital storefronts on Microsoft.com, and stores in Xbox and Windows, reaching more than 1.2 billion people every month in 190 markets. The company will also reimagine spaces that serve all customers, including operating Microsoft Experience Centers in London, NYC, Sydney, and Redmond campus locations. The closing of Microsoft Store physical locations will result in a pre-tax charge of approximately $450M, or $0.05 per share, to be recorded in the current quarter ending June 30, 2020. The charge includes primarily asset write-offs and impairments.

“Our sales have grown online as our product portfolio has evolved to largely digital offerings, and our talented team has proven success serving customers beyond any physical location,” said Microsoft Corporate Vice President David Porter. “We are grateful to our Microsoft Store customers and we look forward to continuing to serve them online and with our retail sales team at Microsoft corporate locations.”

Since the Microsoft Store locations closed in late March due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the retail team has helped small businesses and education customers digitally transform; virtually trained hundreds of thousands of enterprise and education customers on remote work and learning software; and helped customers with support calls. The team supported communities by hosting more than 14,000 online workshops and summer camps and more than 3,000 virtual graduations.

“We deliberately built teams with unique backgrounds and skills that could serve customers from anywhere. The evolution of our workforce ensured we could continue to serve customers of all sizes when they needed us most, working remotely these last months,” said Porter. “Speaking over 120 languages, their diversity reflects the many communities we serve. Our commitment to growing and developing careers from this talent pool is stronger than ever.”

The retail team members will serve consumers, small-business, education, and enterprise customers, while building a pipeline of talent with transferable skills.

“The Microsoft Store team has long been celebrated at Microsoft and embodies our culture,” said Microsoft Chief People Officer Kathleen Hogan. “The team has a proven track record of attracting, motivating, and developing diverse talent. This infusion of talent is invaluable for Microsoft and creates opportunities for thousands of people.”

With significant growth through its digital storefronts, including Microsoft.com, and stores on Xbox and Windows, the company will continue to invest in digital innovation across software and hardware. New services include 1:1 video chat support, online tutorial videos, and virtual workshops with more digital solutions to come.

“It is a new day for how Microsoft Store team members will serve all customers,” said Porter. “We are energized about the opportunity to innovate in how we engage with all customers, maximize our talent for greatest impact, and most importantly help our valued customers achieve more.”
