Sudden closure of Montreal bakery chain

A Montreal bakery chain has closed unexpectedly, leaving roughly 150 workers in shock.

De Gascogne cites economic reasons. 

CTV's Max Harrold reported employees received a letter.

"The letters sent to employees and made available to CTV say the company had not been profitable for some years now. The company has seven stores and a production facility and the starting wage is $11.25 an hour", said Harrold.  

The union said it's not sure workers will receive any severance.

De Gascogne has operated for six decades.
