TORONTO, Dec. 23, 2013 /CNW/ - Sears Canada Inc. (TSX: SCC) announced
today that it will extend store hours over the next two days to help
customers make up for the shortened hours that occurred in some malls
over the weekend due to weather, and to provide an opportunity for
customers to do their shopping in more reasonable weather. Rather than
single out certain locations, Sears will extend its hours at all its
full-line department stores across Canada, where it is permitted to do
so, to midnight on Monday night, December 23 and open its doors at 6:00
a.m. on Tuesday, December 24.
"Customers were counting on being able to shop extensively for Christmas
over the last two days, and weather forced several malls in which we
are located to close and others to operate with limited capacity,"
explained Doug Campbell, President and Chief Executive Officer, Sears
Canada. "Staying open until midnight tonight and opening early on
Christmas Eve will help make up for some of that during this very busy
period. We are thankful to the sales associates who elected to work
the extended shifts and allow their colleagues to carry on with their
All Sears full-line department stores in Canada will participate in the
