Sears Canada was granted protection from its creditors in Ontario Superior Court this morning, allowing it to restructure, closing 20 department stores and 39 Sears Home, Sears Outlet and Sears Hometown stores across Canada. None of the Sears Canada department stores in the GTA will be closed — most of those being closed are located in smaller communities across Canada. Two Sears department stores in Ontario will close: in Brockville and Sault Ste. Marie.
Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne helped publicly launch Amazon’s Canadian headquarters in Toronto on Tuesday, saying that Ontario is better off leading than following the technological revolution that is upending entire segments of the economy, including retail.
It points to the Saks Fifth Avenue location across from the Rockefeller Center in New York City as an example of HBC’s prime real estate, describing the spot as “likely one of the most valuable locations not only in Manhattan, but in the United States,” and asks whether the best use of the property is as a store. “If there is a smarter and better use of any or all of the locations, stores should be closed and redeveloped and put towards their optimal use,” reads the letter from Litt.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
