Welcome Wagon Canada has announced they have closed their doors due to the effects of COVID-19 on their business model.
A company spokesperson said, “...it is with very heavy hearts that we announce the permanent closure of Welcome Wagon in Canada. This decision did not come easily, and was a very difficult choice to make.
We tried every possible solution to try and keep Welcome Wagon functioning through the pandemic, but our efforts were not enough.
We know that this is not easy news to accept, especially given the community impact that Welcome Wagon has had in Canada for the past 90 years, in addition to being fully Canadian owned since 1979. Some of our staff have been with us for over half their lives, and this is a heartbreaking conclusion for everyone at Welcome Wagon.”
Welcome Wagon pioneered community building through personal community engagement. They will be missed!
