Fields, which is currently operating in the lower level of the Rupert Square Mall, will be closed by this fall.

After careful consideration, Hudson’s Bay Company has announced we will wind down our Fields store operations. In December we announced the closure of 26 Ontario Fields store locations, which will close in February 2012. We will wind down the remaining 141 store locations across the country in phases, with closures complete by Fall 2012,” explained Tiffany Bourre, communications manager for the Hudson’s Bay Company.

This is a strategic decision by Hudson’s Bay Company to focus on growing our other banners: The Bay, Lord & Taylor and Home Outfitters. Fields was proud to serve the many communities across Canada where our stores were located and would like to thank of all our customers for their loyalty.”

The closure of Fields will likely take place while Prince Rupert’s other department store, Zellers, is closed for renovations that will see it reopen as a Walmart location.
