Best Buy next on the Close List. November 7, 2011Posted by eddiefitz in News.
The BBC reported today;
“Carphone Warehouse is to close all of its 11 Best Buy stores across the UK, the company has announced.
The move puts 1,100 jobs at risk at the outlets, which sell electronic goods, but the firm said it hoped to find the “large majority” alternative work.
The 11 Best Buy stores are part of Best Buy Europe, a joint venture between US group Best Buy and Carphone Warehouse.
The first Best Buy store in the UK only opened in April of last year. The outlets have failed to make a profit.
Best Buy’s 11 UK outlets are in Liverpool, Derby, Bristol, Nottingham, Rotherham, Dudley, Thurrock, Southampton, and three places in London – Croydon, Hayes and Enfield.”
..as commented on this site over the past few months, the rolling closures and cut backs continue across both CPW and TTG. We can only hope this closure and reduction process will slow to a full stop soon.
