Shipping In the beginning, HBC mainly operated around the shores. Annually, the Natives would bring furs to trade for manufactured goods (knives, kettles, blankets). Around the late 18th century HBC has started expanding to the interior of the land due to competition.
By 1881 the first HBC department store was opened in Winnipeg.
In the end of the 19th century, customers no longer have interest in the buying of fur which caused HBC to change their focus by changing their trading posts into sale shops and transportation posts. Hudson Bay Company is Canada’s oldest retailer. Along with general retailers in Canada, HBC continues to lead its next-closest competitor, Sears, in terms of annual sales. In 2003, HBC posted revenues of $7.4 billion and reported close to 70 000 employees.

Retail competition is poised to increase in Canada as Minneapolis-based Target, the second-biggest U.S. retailer, opens 125 to 135 stores in the country in 2013 and Seattle-based Nordstrom opens the first of what may be nine locations in 2014.
