South Best Buy store to close May 12

04152012bestbuyclosingsignEmployees at Rochester's south Best Buy store were told this morning that the store will close on May 12.

The store is closed temporarily this morning, but will re-open Sunday for regular hours until the May closing.

The store was built and opened in the Shoppes on Maine commercial development in September 2008.

This is part of the closing of 50 stores the company previously announced as a move to strenghten the struggling Big Box retailer.

Best Buy also has a Big Box store in northwest Rochester and a mobile phone store in the Apache Mall.

I've seen mentions of stores closing in other towns but haven't seen any mention of liquidation sales - are they just shipping product to the North store and other stores?

They're shipping the best stuff (HDTV's and Apple stuff) to other stores.
