Bentley, Canada’s largest specialist retailer of bags and luggage, has successfully navigated a restructuring process that secures 163 stores and 1,300 jobs. The plan was developed by a team from Hilco Capital (which trades as Re:Capital in Canada), working closely with Bentley’s management team.
Support from Bentley’s employees, landlords and suppliers, together with funding from Re:Capital, has enabled a more sustainable business to emerge, strongly positioned for future growth.
Walter Lamothe, Bentley’s CEO & President, commented: “Our focus now is to craft a unique position for Bentley in the market place. The entire Bentley team is grateful to continue to support the communities they have catered to for so many years, and we look forward to a new generation discovering the expertise we bring in travel goods and day to day solutions for carrying personal belongings away from home.”
