All Disney Stores In Canada Are Shutting Down & Most Will Be Closed Within Weeks

Liquidation sales are expected to start on Monday.👇

There's more bad news in store for Mickey and Minnie lovers! Disney has reportedly confirmed that all Disney stores in Canada are shutting down and many will be permanently closed before the end of next month.

A new report from Retail Insider says that ShopDisney.com has announced it will shutter almost all of Canada's physical Disney stores in August, leaving just three remaining locations in the Greater Toronto Area.

The latest confirmed closures are for stores in Alberta, Manitoba and Ontario. This includes all locations in Edmonton at West Edmonton Mall and Kingsway Mall, as well as the shops in Calgary at CF Market Mall and Southcentre.

Ontario-based Disney stores are also closing their doors permanently, including at Yorkdale Shopping Centre, Upper Canada Mall, CF Lime Ridge in Hamilton and CF Rideau Centre in Ottawa.

Last month, Disney also began shutting all locations across B.C., including locations at CF Pacific Centre in Vancouver, Metropolis at Metrotown in Burnaby and Guildford Town Centre in Surrey.

According to Retail Insider's report, liquidation sales in the latest locations confirmed to be closing will begin on Monday, July 26. They're set to say goodbye for good around August 6, 2021.

For now, Disney stores in CF Toronto Eaton Centre, Scarborough Town Centre and Vaughan Mills will remain open, although they may be shuttered before the end of August.

News that Disney was preparing to shut down all physical stores in Canada was first reported back in April but store staff had apparently not been notified of any closures at that time.
