Kamloops Future Shop escapes company axe
The Kamloops Future Shop location has escaped Canadian store closures enacted by parent company Best Buy.
Best Buy shut down 15 Best Buy and Future Shop stores across Canada this week.
Included are five Best Buy stores (Queensborough, Nanaimo, Victoria, Langford and South Surrey) and one Future Shop shop in West Kelowna.
The closures will lead to the elimination of up to 900 jobs, which represents five per cent of the company's Canadian employee base.
Last March, Best Buy said it would close 50 stores in the United States.
Including the Kamloops location in Aberdeen Mall, the company operates 139 Future Shop stores and 58 Best Buy outlets in Canada.
