Sony will close all 14 of its Sony Stores across Canada in the next 6 to 8 weeks as the company continues to reshape its business.
In a statement, Sony said it was encouraging its Canadian customers to buy Sony products at third-party retailers across the country, through its online store or by telephone. The statement also says that the company will reach out to previous Sony store customers in order to provide details about warranties and technical support in the future.
The company has refused to give a specific reason for the closure, but a spokesperson from Sony Canada confirmed that 90 employees across the country will be affected.
Sony has retail locations in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Quebec City.
The company’s news follows Target's announcement that it would be shutting down all of its retail stores in Canada.
