|Restructuring and Related Activities [Abstract]
Canadian Restructuring Plan
During fiscal 2018, the Company initiated plans to restructure the operations of the Canada segment. The restructuring seeks to streamline operations in the greater Toronto area by consolidating facilities, exiting certain lines of business, and rationalizing stock keeping units (“SKUs”). The intended result of the Canada restructuring will be a more streamlined and scalable operation focused on delivering optimal service and a broad offering of products across the Company's core categories. Plans were finalized during the fourth quarter of 2018. The Company expects to wrap up restructuring related activities in our Canada segment in 2021. Charges incurred in part of the Canada Restructuring Plan included:
(1)Facility consolidation includes inventory valuation adjustments associated with SKU rationalization, labor expense related to organizing inventory and equipment in preparation for the facility consolidation, consulting and legal fees related to the project, and other expenses. The labor, consulting, and legal expenses were included in selling, general and administrative expense ("SG&A") on the Consolidated Statement of Comprehensive Loss. The inventory valuation adjustments were included in cost of sales on the Consolidated Statement of Comprehensive Loss.

Related charges included adjustments to write inventory down to net realizable value, asset impairment charges, and employee severance, which were included in cost of sales, other income and expense, and SG&A on the Consolidated Statement of Comprehensive Loss, respectively.
