As of Tuesday, Hudson's Bay is officially closing down all of its Toronto locations during the city's lockdown.

The company recently faced criticism after it initially decided to keep its flagship location on Queen Street open.

However, the store was eventually closed to ensure the health and safety of customers.

We have now made the decision to close our Queen Street store tomorrow. All Hudson's Bay stores in Toronto and Peel will offer shoppers curbside pickup.

The store, located at 176 Yonge St., was kept open since it contained a grocery store.

A company spokesperson told Narcity that they believed it was in line with the province's orders.

However, they later opted to close the stores down and offer curbside pickup instead.

The move comes after Doug Ford got grilled by reporters about the locations opening on Monday afternoon.

The premier stated it was "unfair" that big box stores like the Bay would remain open while many small businesses would be forced to close.

Comments are now closed.
