Best Buy Reveals 42 Stores to Be Closed
By Swanni 

Washington, D.C. (April 15, 2012) -- Best Buy yesterday revealed the locations for 42 'big box' stores it will close this year.

The CE retailer announced on March 29 that it would close 50 stories but has not disclosed until now the full list of stores that would get the ax.


Best Buy is closing the stores due to sluggish sales and shrinking profits. The company lost $1.7 billion in the last quarter, compared to a profit of $651 million in the same quarter a year ago. The store closures represent a little less than three percent of its retail force. (Best Buy has 1,450 stores in the United States.)


Best Buy says it has already closed two stores, one in Kansas City and one in Scottsdale, Arizona. Plus, one San Antonio stores and five Twin Cities stores have been notified that they will close later this year.

Yesterday, employees at the remaining 42 stores were told their stores will be closing, most by May 12.

"This was not an easy decision to make. We chose these stores carefully, and are working to ensure the impact to our employees will be as minimal as possible, while serving all customers in a convenient and satisfying way. But we also recognize the impact this news has on the people who deserve respect for the contributions they have made to our business," Best Buy said in a statement.

Here are the 42 Best Buy stores that will be closing over the next several weeks:
