The Brick to Close Customer Care Centres in Edmonton and a Montreal Suburb

The Brick is closing customer care centres in Edmonton and a Montreal suburb as part of a restructuring designed to improve service. An Internet customer care centre in Edmonton and a larger call centre in Kirkland, Que., will close by March 12. Both centres provided after-sales product delivery and service coordination. The Edmonton centre employed nine people as of January 14, 2016. The Kirkland call centre had a staff of 66. The company plans to move most workers to other positions, but some staffing reductions are expected. Stores will now handle warranties for furniture and mattresses. Appliance and electronics warranties will be managed by an Edmonton call centre that will continue to operate. All other post-sale customer care will be transitioned to the stores. Internet after-sale customer service has been redeployed to the stores closest to the customer or delivery location of the order.
