Shipping giant FedEx is closing its FedEx Office stores in Canada after 32 years in the country, according to a report by The Canadian Press, which notes FedEx Office will close its 24 stores, a manufacturing plant in Markham, Ontario, and its head office in Toronto.
FedEx Office stores provide a range of business services like copying and printing, sign making, office supplies sales and packaging services. They also serve stores as pick-up and drop-off sites for FedEx shipping.
The move will result in the loss of 214 jobs, but will not affect FedEx’s shipping business in Canada, according to FedEx Spokeswoman Stacey Sullivan. Eighteen of the stores are in Ontario, five in B.C. and one in Nova Scotia. The closings are to begin in August.
