Black’s Closing Its Doors – More Info.
After almost 70 years in Canada, the Blacks Photography chain is folding because the retailer was unable to adapt to a rapidly changing photography market.
All 59 Blacks stores will close August 8, affecting a total of 485 employees, most of them in Ontario.
Some workers will be offered new positions at parent company Telus, in the company head office, or at Telus or Koodo retail outlets or call centres. Others will receive a “transition package.”
