According to Retail Insider, all 18 Disney Store locations in Canada will close by the end of the summer. This move comes after Disney announced in March that 20% of all Disney Stores in North America would be closing for good.
Two Canadian Disney Stores were on the list of closing locations released in March. The remaining 18 locations are now rumored to be next. Disney is said to be paying out any money owed on leases to facilitate speedy closures.
Disney has been open with the plan to move toward e-commerce, leaning heavily on ShopDisney rather than physical store locations. This will be in combination with the new partnership with Target, allowing for “miniature” Disney Stores inside the retail giant in select locations.
