Future Shop News For Canada
Future Shop stores are closing their doors in Canada. This comes on the heels of Target stores closing its doors as well.
While Target is moving out of Canada completely and liquidating all it’s merchandise, Future Shop is taking a different approach. They will now be branded under Best Buy Canada. Best buy is Future Shop chain’s parent store so I guess it makes sense to consolidate the two.
Here is what we know so far;
- 66 stores will remain closed permanently
- 65 Future Shop locations will be closed for a week and re-opened under the Best Buy name.
- 1000 part time employees will lose their jobs
- 500 full time employees will lose their jobs
This is another sad hit for the Canadian economy right now.
