High-end chocolate seller Godiva will close Mississauga location
Chocolate lovers will find little comfort in the news that Godiva has announced the closing of its Mississauga Square One location.
The high-end chocolatier will shut down officially at the end of March as the company has announced it is pulling out of the North American retail market. It is currently offering curbside pickup at Square One.
In all, 11 stores in Canada will close as the company indicates sales have dropped due to the pandemic and changing buying habits.
However, it doesn't mean you won't be able to get your chocolate.
“Godiva is already available in many retailers in North America and we will continue to increase our presence there while always upholding the premium quality, taste, and innovation that we have been renowned for since we were founded in Brussels in 1926,” said Chief Executive Nurtac Afridi.
The company will continue to operate stores in other parts of the world.
As recently as 2019 the company had announced plans to expand across North America.
It is not known at this time how many jobs will be lost because of the closure.
