Stopped into a Bowrings location in Ottawa today and there was a note posted on the door that said " last day to use gifts or money cards is December 8th 2018 due to bankruptcy". So if you have a card use it as soon as possible or it'll be worthless. I happen to have a store credit on a money card so I used it today. All stores are closing. Very little Christmas merchandise as suppliers did not ship due to credit protection I was told. This was always a good retailer to go in to get you in the mood for decorating your house for Christmas. Don't quite get the same feeling shopping online. :( All merchandise is 20% off or more. Staff was very down, many of them have worked there for years. Kind of made me sad.

How come such a dumb comment gets 4 thumbs up - oh... right, Bombay company must have employees.
Perhaps some people realize decorum is not a tall request.
Funny how the response is to call people shills to excuse someone else acting like a child

On a side note...
I don’t get all the hate in this topic
I get that not every retailer carries goods that everyone is going to buy
But that doesn’t mean they deserve all the vitriol that is being heaped on them here
Ya don’t like a store, cause it’s not for you fine... don’t shop there
But what’s the point of criticizing those that do, or have ?
They enjoy behaving this way. And when called out on it they lash out in order to reassert their dominance
The beatings will continue until morale improves

I might be wrong, but
I believe Bowring/Bomabay is now in the hands of Hilco.
(Yup! Same people that liquidated Sears.)

Today, Bowring's liquidation sale hit 40% off, earlier this week it was 30% off. The lineup was pretty long in the store I was in.

This is what, the third time Bombay has gone through a "going out of business" sale?

Went to both Bombay and Bowring in Langley. Bowring was picked pretty clean. Bombay still had a fair bit of stuff but nothing that myself or the wife cared for. All feels like pseudo-quality stuff (particle board covered with leather, that kind of stuff).
If it’s not at least 50% off is it really a deal?
