Juul, a discount retailer, has closed its doors after more than 10 years.
It’s not clear what triggered the closure, but the retailer is one of the few in Canada that still has retail outlets in B.C. and Manitoba.
Juul had more than 60 stores in the country, including stores in Surrey, Surrey, Kitchener, Kitchenette and B.P. with more than 100 locations in British Columbia.
Juuls CEO Paul Cram said in an interview that the company would close in the coming weeks, and it was likely to shut down the company’s wholesale arm, the Vancouver International Market.
“We don’t have a lot of cash flow to support our operations in the long term,” he said.
“And in the short term, we need to make some difficult decisions.”
He said that it would be difficult to continue the business in the longer term, as the company faced a shrinking market and its employees were losing their jobs.
“If we’re going to operate in a way that supports our employees, we’re not going to survive,” he added.
“This is a difficult situation for us and our team, and our customers, but we are focused on what’s best for our brand and the future of the company.”
In a statement, the B.A.C.-based retailer said it will work with local employees to find new work.
“With over 60 locations, Juul has a long history of serving the needs of our members,” the statement said.
The Vancouver International Marketplace, which was created to serve the Vancouver area, is now owned by Canadian retailer Urban Outfitters.
Its retail operations include stores in Vancouver and Surrey, but also in Burnaby, Surrey and Vancouver.
Urban Outfits’ website states that its “100% owned by our community and it is our commitment to the local community that we offer the best in local brands and products to our members.”
“We’re proud to support the Vancouver market with our own local brands in a number of different ways,” the site states.
The Urban Outfits Vancouver site says it will “continue to support its local community in ways that support its core business and our members, including its own local workforce, the local restaurant network and the growing Urban Outfitting Community,” the company says.
“It is also important to note that we are proud to serve our local communities with our Urban OutFit brand, which is our way of saying thanks.”
It is not clear whether Urban Outfillings has plans to open a new store in British Colombia.
It has been unclear what role the company will play in Balsall, which has had more stores since the closure of Juul in 2009.
The company also closed its Surrey store, which it had opened in 2009, and has not announced a new location.
Juula, which operates in B-C., has not had a physical store since its launch in 2003.
In an interview with the B-Tides, Cram described the closing of Juula as a shock to all of the employees and customers of the Vancouver outlet.
He said it was a tough decision to make, and that the loss of employees and business was a blow.
“That’s a very difficult time for the people who work here and the families who live here,” Cram told the BTL.
“When I look at the people that work here, it’s not a day to go home.
It is a very sad day.
But when you start to see the impact, it is very hard.” “
People are not used to this type of situation and we’re all used to it.
But when you start to see the impact, it is very hard.”
In the end, the decision was a hard one for Cram.
“The staff here, we’ve been here since 1987, and this is the first time we’ve had to close down a store.
It was a very tough decision for the team,” he told the CBC.
“I don’t know if we could survive it.
We just have to take it one day at a time.”
