Fields to close

Fields in Williams Lake will be closing as the Hudson's Bay Company moves to winding down its Fields store operations across the country.

Fields in Williams Lake will be closing as the Hudson’s Bay Company moves to winding down its Fields store operations across the country.

“I don’t have an exact closing date for you. We’re winding down in phases and all closures will be complete by fall 2012,” says Tiffany BourrĂ©,

external communications manager for the Hudson’s Bay Company.

Bourre says the building in Williams Lake is leased.

The closures, she says, are based on a strategic decision by HBC to focus on growing its other banners — The Bay, Home Outfitters and Lord & Taylor.

A total of 167 stores will be closing.

The building on Oliver Street has been leased by the company, Bourre says.
