Best Buy drops list of 50 store closures – are you amongst them?

Everyone working in the United States at a Best Buy Big Box store that've been on-edge about the future of their branch will today either be sighing with relief or breaking out their resumes as Best Buy has released a final list of USA closures. The giant list of 50 closures has been brewing now for many weeks, with the final 42 closures being listed by Best Buy this week. Included in these are one location in Kansas City Missouri, another in Scottsdale Arizona, and a whopping five in Best Buy's home state of Minnesota - each of them in the Twin Cities.

Each and every one of the employees at these locations, Best Buy notes, will be either offered jobs elsewhere inside Best Buy's extended network, or will be given severance packages to ease their transition to a new job. Most of the locations listed here will be permanently closed by the 12th of May. Customers currently still doing business with any of these particular stores are or will be being contacted by phone by Best Buy officials soon.
