All Disney stores in Canada are shutting down before the end of the summer, according to new reports. There are currently Disney stores based across Canada, with locations in Ontario, B.C., Alberta and Manitoba.
Disney announced last month that it was planning on focusing on its commerce business while at the same time reducing its brick-and-mortar footprint. A total of 60 North American locations were announced to close.
“Over the next year Disney will focus on providing a more seamless, personalized and franchise-focused ecommerce experience through its shopDisney platform which will be complemented by greater integration with Disney Parks apps and social media platforms,” Disney said “This will be coupled with an assortment of new and elevated merchandise from the Company’s full range of brands, including adult apparel collections and artist collaborations, trend-forward streetwear, premium home products and collectibles.”
