Due to what the company called "large-scale restructuring," children's wear company Please Mum is closing all but 21 stores in Canada.

In total, 70 stores are being shuttered,, including the South Surrey Please Mum franchise at Grandview Corners, which had previously been located in Semiahmoo Shopping Centre.

"As a result of significant shifts in the retail landscape, we've had to make tough decisions about the future of our company," said Please Mum founder and CEO Kathryn Adrian in an online statement. "We're restructuring our business in the long-term interests of the company, our employees, customers, suppliers and creditors."

 

Three locations remain in B.C., including Langley, Burnaby and Vancouver.
