Even their more focused and upmarket stores are a bit of a mess. The HBC flagship in Granville in Vancouver is clean enough but it's kind of a depressing place to be, the experience is kind of all over the place. Some of the floors are very clean and exude a bit of luxury while others are full of scuff marks and piles of clearance merchandise.

Good on them on finally ditching the "losing" brands. With the advent of the internet, ease of access of information and the aging of the millennial cohort that grew up with this access (can't believe I'm saying that now...time goes by quickly), there's just no excuse for stocking completely unrecognizable brands with no perceived consumer value. Tastes and fashion shift and with how cheap decent looking clothing (fast fashion) has become, the low-mid tier market just has no appeal anymore.
