I hope they do something with that Bay store on bloor, it's a disaster, inside and out.
Where would HBC's head office go then? Back to the Hudson's Bay Tower on Bloor? Or maybe to their secondary offices in Brampton?Both, apparently.
I hate to say "I told you so", but I can afford to lose some dignity since no one knows who I am. I predicted these moves right here a few months ago (sorry, too lazy to find the post). Not a tragedy. This wasn't a Bay store in the first place, so who cares? Re DT Sears, anybody walking through those abandoned aisles could tell you that they're not making any money there, even with their bargain lease rates.While dining with a recently packaged out, former HBC marketeer last week I heard that if they are going to sell a store in Toronto, it would be the downtown one, because they are going to unload the Simpson tower anyway, and there is a much higher chance of selling the downtown store as opposed to the Bloor Street store, which NO ONE wants.
haha!!!The stores would be similar in size and format to its big boxes south of the border, which actively cater to women with wide aisles....
