Huge streetwear store in Toronto is permanently closed

A sneaker and streetwear store abruptly closed a central location in the Eaton Center this week, and it looks like other Toronto locations won’t be around for long.

Footaction has disappeared from the strip of the popular downtown mall and it has been reported that all leases on its stores will expire in the next two years.

The brand was acquired by Foot Locker in 2004 out of bankruptcy proceedings, and apparently some higher-performing Footaction locations will be rebranded as Foot Locker, Champs Sports, and Foot Locker Kids stores.

There are also Footaction locations in the Yorkdale and Fairview shopping centers as well as in Scarborough town centre.

The Footaction Toronto Instagram account was last active on October 13, although the page has not posted an official announcement or update on the status of the stores in the city.
