FedEx Of­fice stores clos­ing in Canada

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - CANADA -

TORONTO — Ship­ping gi­ant FedEx is clos­ing its FedEx Of­fice stores in Canada af­ter 32 years in the coun­try. Spokes­woman Stacey Sul­li­van says FedEx Of­fice will close its 24 stores, a man­u­fac­tur­ing plant in Markham, Ont., and its head of­fice in Toronto. The move will re­sult in the loss of 214 jobs, but will not af­fect FedEx’s ship­ping busi­ness in Canada, she said, adding the de­ci­sion was made af­ter as­sess­ing cur­rent and fu­ture busi­ness prospects. Eigh­teen of the stores are in On­tario, five in B.C. and one in Nova Sco­tia.

The clos­ings are to be­gin in Au­gust.
