BIG BOX ELECTRONICS RETAILER Best Buy will close its stores in the UK.
The firm has only been in the UK for under two years, but that period has coincided with poor financial circumstances in the country. Its suburban locations also meant that it was rarely mentioned during the UK riots, unlike its more well known high street competitors.
The INQUIRER went to the opening of its flagship store in Essex in April 2010, and found it to be nice, but perhaps other punters did not think the same. According to a statement, the US parent company will buy out its local partner, Carphone Warehouse, and has cancelled plans to move into Europe.
