By Bernard Bujold (LeStudio1) –
My favorite store closed its stores as announced to employees this Saturday, March 28, 2015! The closure was in effect immediately and definitively.
The company will retain its banners Best Buy and some Future Shop stores will become Best Buy, like the one of St. Catherine Street in Montreal which will reopen on April 4, but others will disappear completely. A total surprise!
My passion for technology arose in this store and that’s where I bought my first computer… Since last year, stores had, however, taken the shape of a kind of “hospice” and the inventory was at its lowest. It had also started selling furniture, coffee makers, etc. You could feel a sort of early end at the sale of technology devices and this is what just happened! Another page of history that turns.
Goodbye dear friend…
