Although unconfirmed, rumours abound that Hawkesbury’s Bentley store may be closing soon.

According to rumour, the Bentley store on Cameron Street in Hawkesbury is getting ready to close up shop. The bag and luggage retailer announced a restructuring plan back in 2019 that included store closures and layoffs, and this may be the next step in that plan. 

Bentley’s last day in Hawkesbury could be February 4 at the latest, although if the store sells out of luggage sooner, it will close before then. A total of 30 employees would be affected by the closure, with five working in the retail store and 25 working in the warehouse. The warehouse would close a month after the retail store. 

Staff at the retail store was unable to comment on the rumours, and the Bentley head office in Montréal did not respond to either phone or email inquiries in time for publication. However, there is now a large ‘For Rent’ sign outside of the store.
