Hudson’s Bay in Edmonton City Centre mall to close

Another major department store in downtown Edmonton is about to close. On Thursday, Hudson’s Bay announced it would be closing its Edmonton City Centre location.

In a news release, the store says the decision comes as the company works to accelerate “its strategy to elevate the brand and improve performance.”

The store will reopen, after being closed amid the COVID-19 pandemic, on May 19, along with all Alberta Hudson’s Bay stores, and a gradual closing will follow after that.

A spokesperson for the company said it didn’t have anything further to add when contacted for further information by 630 CHED.

Earlier this year, Holt Renfrew also closed its downtown Edmonton location after 69 years of operation.
