Le Chateau’s application under the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act will be heard today by a Quebec court.

The clothing retailer says it can no longer continue its operations as a going concern.

It says circumstances leave the company with no option other than to start the liquidation process.

It has 500 head office employees and 900 retail store employees.
