Mendocino, a Toronto, Ontario-based fashion apparel retailer that carries on business under the trade names Mendocino and M Boutique, filed an NOI on July 14. Prior to the government-mandated shutdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the company operated 28 retail locations in the GTA and surrounding area. Like many retailers, the COVID-19 pandemic significantly impacted the company's business and operations, forcing it to revisit its business model. During the NOI proceedings, the company intends to reduce the number of store locations and increase its e-commerce presence. KSV is the proposal trustee. Counsel is Chaitons for the company and GSNH for the proposal trustee.
