Sears Canada Flyer - Sears Canada Inc. is a Canadian retail chain headquartered in Toronto, Ontario. The company's roots are in Simpsons-Sears, a joint venture with the Simpsons retail chain and the U.S. Sears chain, which operated a national mail order business, and co-branded Simpsons-Sears stores modelled after the U.S. Sears chain.
Following the purchase of Simpsons by the Hudson's Bay Company in 1978, the joint venture was dismantled, and the Simpsons-Sears stores became solely owned by Sears. In 1999, Sears Canada acquired the remaining assets and locations of the historic Canadian chain Eaton's. Sears Holdings now owns a 11.7% share in the company. ESL Investments Incorporated is the largest shareholder of Sears Canada.
Today, the retailer has a network that includes 140 corporate stores (including full-line, Sears Home and Outlet stores), 71 Hometown stores, over 900 catalogue and online merchandise pick-up locations, 69 Sears Travel offices and a nationwide repair and service network. The company also publishes a general merchandise catalogue and offers shopping online at www.sears.ca.
