Sears Extends Store Hours to Help Customers Make Up for Shortened Weekend due
Most stores across Canada Open until Midnight Monday and Open Early Tuesday
TORONTO, Dec. 23, 2013 /CNW/ - Sears Canada Inc. (TSX: SCC) announced today
that it will extend store hours over the next two days to help customers make
up for the shortened hours that occurred in some malls over the weekend due to
weather, and to provide an opportunity for customers to do their shopping in
more reasonable weather. Rather than single out certain locations, Sears
will extend its hours at all its full-line department stores across Canada,
where it is permitted to do so, to midnight on Monday night, December 23 and
open its doors at 6:00 a.m. on Tuesday, December 24.
"Customers were counting on being able to shop extensively for Christmas over
the last two days, and weather forced several malls in which we are located to
close and others to operate with limited capacity," explained Doug Campbell,
President and Chief Executive Officer, Sears Canada. "Staying open until
midnight tonight and opening early on Christmas Eve will help make up for some
of that during this very busy period. We are thankful to the sales
associates who elected to work the extended shifts and allow their colleagues
to carry on with their plans."
All Sears full-line department stores in Canada will participate in the
extended hours except Lloydminster, Prince Albert, Moose Jaw, Sault Ste.
Marie, Sudbury, Cobourg, Bathurst, Truro, New Glasgow, New Minas, Corner Brook
and those located in the province of Quebec.
