Best Buy to close stores on January 15th


We mentioned just a couple of weeks ago the demise of Best Buy here in the UK. The joint venture between Best Buy and Carphone Warehouse has failed to make expected  profits and the company will close its eleven UK stores on January 15th.

The good news is that Best Buy will have a closing down sale so expect some bargains in the coming weeks.

To our valued Best Buy customers, vendors, suppliers, and friends,
We’ve loved bringing our passion for the latest and greatest technology to Britain over the past 2 years, and have always had the utmost appreciation, respect, and commitment to the entire UK marketplace, our customers and stakeholders.
However, as you may know, based upon the outcome of our employee consultation, we intend to cease retail trading at our Best Buy UK branded stores & website by the 15th January 2012.
We are sincerely sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause you.
We are still committed to making sure your needs are well served up until our closing and beyond. Our on-going services are described in the "Customer Notice" and in our stores.
We’re also committed to on-going global relationships with our many vendors and suppliers, and appreciate your patience as we work to contact each as soon as possible to discuss our plans for the future.
Should you need to talk to us before then, please do not hesitate to call us on 0800 380 00 00. As a vendor or supplier, you are welcome to get in touch with your Best Buy relationship contact at any time.
We look forward to completing all of our remaining business together in the most respectful and professional manner possible.
Many thanks from everyone at Best Buy UK.
