We are also pleased to have reached agreements with the majority of our landlords concerning our COVID-19 rental obligations. We remain fully committed to our long-term strategy as a proudly Canadian, Quebec-based specialty retailer, in order to create long-term value for our shareholders.” − Le Château Executive Team.Financial and operating results
