A major Montreal area distributor of magazines and books is closing after nearly 100 years of operations.
Benjamin News, based in Bois-de-Filion, will be laying off more than 220 people in April.
The company cites, among other things, a drop in magazine sales.
Paul Benjamin says a number of deals have been made to continue distribution of magazines and books to more than 7-thousand retailers in Quebec, New Brunswick and Ontario.
He joined the family business 40 years ago.
