Holt Renfrew closing Ottawa location

A high-end Ottawa department store is closing its doors.

Holt Renfrew will shutter its Sparks Street location at the end of January, according to a corporate news release.

Seventy-two employees of the luxury retailer will lose their jobs.

Holt Renfrew President Mark Derbyshire says it was a tough call to leave Ottawa; the company says it's decided to concentrate on its "flagship markets" which include Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and Calgary.

Holt Renfrew is also closing its store in Quebec City.
