J. Crew permanently shuts down all stores in Canada except one
Sorry J. Crew shoppers, but it looks like you'll no longer be able to stock up on your favourite jeans, khakis, or sweaters in Canada.
The clothing retailer recently shut the doors on two of its three remaining Canadian locations including one on Bloor Street in Toronto on Sept. 23 and one on Robson Street in Vancouver on Sept. 28.
With both locations shuttering, there is only one more full-priced J.Crew store remaining in Canada, that being at Toronto's Yorkdale Shopping Centre.
There are currently no plans to close this store as of yet.
Back in May, J. Crew became the first major retailer to file for bankruptcy since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. At the time, the U.S. company reported a whooping US$78.8 million loss on revenues.
For Ontario and British Columbia residents, though, this luckily does not mean the clothing store has completely disappeared.
J. Crew continues to operate five outlet stores between the two provinces, one at McArthurGlen Designer Outlets in Vancouver, one at Vaughan Mills near Toronto, one at the Toronto Premium Outlets in Halton Hills, one at the Outlet Collection at Niagara near Niagara Falls, and one at Tanger Outlets in Ottawa.
The company first entered Canada back in 2011 at Yorkdale and ran a network of stores across the country including Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa, and Toronto.
In 2018, however, units at CF Rideau Centre in Ottawa closed down as well as units in CF Fairview and CF Markville in Toronto, CF Market Mall in Calgary and CF Sherway Gardens in Toronto. In 2019, Toronto's CF Eaton Centre location shut down.
