Some workers were laid off as of last Friday, others showed up to work today to find notices on the door that the Best Buy or Future Shop location they worked at was now closed.
The Best Buy stores that are now closed or will close soon are:
- Langford (Westshore Town Centre)
- South Surrey, British Columbia
- Lachenaie, British Columbia
- Sherbrooke (SmartCentres Sherbrooke), Quebec.
and the Future Shop stores:
- West Kelowna, British Columbia
- Montreal (Forum Entertainment Center), Quebec
- Laval (First Pro Ste-Dorothee), Quebec
- Winnipeg (Regent), Manitoba
- Calgary (Macleod), Alberta
- Ancaster, Barrie South, Ontario
- Mississauga (Erin Mills), Ontario
More store closures may follow as the company move to smaller concept stores in an effort to combat overhead as customers visit stores to try out items but shop online for cheaper deals.
