Another popular downtown landmark is closing up.

Indigo Canada has confirmed that Chapter's Festival Hall at the corner of Richmond and John is going to shut down on May 30th.

When asked for comment, Newstalk1010 recieved the following:

"We, like every great retailer, regularly review, assess and negotiate lease arrangements for all of our store locations when the leases near expiry. After lengthy negotiations, we have made the difficult decision not to renew our lease for Chapters Festival Hall at John and Richmond in Toronto, and will close the store, effective May 30, 2014. We believe there continue to be opportunities for us to better serve our GTA customers and we are actively looking for new real estate options in Oakville, downtown Toronto and Bloor West Village that will best meet our requirements."

There's no word yet on another retailer who could fill the void left in the building.
