We already knew that Best Buy planned to close 50 of its retail stores by the end of 2013 and now we have more details. They have already closed two locations and six others will close their doors before the end of the year. The last 42 will shut down before May 12th.
Employees got the bad news this weekend and were told that the company will try to re-position or give them them severance packages. So I guess it could be worse for them. The company also wants you to know that you will still have nearby locations to shop at for all the latest gear.
As far as the 100 Best Buy Mobile stores it wants to setup, there is no news. We will probably hear about it later this year. Hit the link for a full listing of stores.
