Housewares battle pushes Bowring, Bombay into bankruptcy protection

2014.08.19


A trio of housewares chains owned by a prominent Canadian retailing family has gone into bankruptcy protection, adding to a growing array of domestic stores that are faltering in the face of pressures from foreign powerhouses and online players.

Bombay & Co. Inc., Bowring & Co. Inc. and Benix & Co. Inc., owned by a member of the Isaac Benitah family that also owns Fairweather, International Clothiers and other chains, received court protection from creditors last week, owing $86.6-million, according to court documents. Almost half of the debts – $39.5 million – is owed to companies tied to brothers Isaac and Fred Benitah as secured creditors, the filings say.


Bombay & Co., Inc. operates 52 stores across Canada and offers large furniture, small, occasional furniture, wall decor and home accessories. In true Bombay tradition many styles are still flat packed and require assembly.
