The Hudson’s Bay department store located in downtown Toronto will shut down permanently this spring. The location at at 44 Bloor Street East opened 47 years ago.
“HBC continually looks at opportunities to optimize its real estate portfolio. Given the unique proximity to the Hudson’s Bay Queen Street flagship location in Toronto, Hudson’s Bay has made the decision to close its Bloor Street store on May 31, 2022. The flagship store is located just 2.5 km from Bloor on Queen Street, and we will continue to serve the community with a seamless omnichannel experience at that location and online. We are committed to treating every associate with respect and fairness through this process. All eligible associates will receive appropriate employment separation packages and transfer opportunities will be explored where feasible.”
