Lawrence’s Best Buy store will not be one of about 50 stores the electronics retailer closes as it attempts to revamp its operations.
Corporate officials with Best Buy have released the complete list of store closings, and only one Kansas location is slated for closure. The Best Buy store in The Legends shopping center near the Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., is slated to close by mid-May, the company announced. One other Best Buy store in Kansas City, Mo., was closed in February.
Best Buy operates a store near 31st and Iowa streets in Lawrence.
The retailer announced earlier this year that it would close about 50 big box stores in an effort to give the company more flexibility to open smaller, more mobile-oriented stores in the future.
