Hudson's Bay is closing down stores across Canada due to COVID-19

Hudson's Bay is now closing all of its locations across Canada due to the spread of COVID-19.

After days of silence, Canada's iconic department store announced on Tuesday that it will close all 89 locations across the country, effective immediately.

The store's nostalgic 90s-themed pop-up shops — which were supposed to run until April 2020 — will also close.

Hudson's Bay will pay store associates for all scheduled shifts, but it's unclear whether the store will provide employees with financial assistance beyond that.

The news comes in the wake of competitor Nordstrom closing all locations across the country due to the growing COVID-19 pandemic.
