Best Buy to Shutter Canadian Future Shop, Invest $160M Into Great White North
Best Buy announced Saturday that it's consolidating its Canadian division. Its namesake brand and the Future Shop locations it acquired in 2001 will now all function under the Best Buy name. Currently a large number of Future Shop and Best Buys are positioned side by side. As a result, 66 Future Shop locations are being shut down for good. The other 65 Future Shop locations will be shuttered for one week to complete the transition. Once they reopen, Best Buy will have 192 locations in Canada.
