Brief Bits: Best Buy Closing 50 Locations in the U.S.

It’s not often that we report on general technology news, but Best Buy has announced that they are closing 50 of their U.S. locations by next year to reduce its costs, and this could have an effect on where you purchase your Apple products and other latest gadgets. Best Buy has not confirmed which locations in particular will be closing, but certain retail stores will be replaced with one of 100 new Best Buy Mobile standalone outlets that the big box retailer plans to launch by next year. We’re just hopeful that the hundreds of Best Buy retail employees that will be affected by these closures are helped out by the big box retailer.
