Best Buy, 2023

According to the January 31 article "Best Buy Is Closing More Locations on March 4", Best Buy has been closing stores across the board, and the scale of these closures has not been as extensive as those of some of the company's competitors.

The electronics retailer Best Buy plans to close additional stores in 2023.

It was just reported a day ago that the retailer will soon be exiting the state of Tennessee with two distinct stores that will be closing their doors.

Stores in Farragut and Chattanooga are closing.

"This closure is a part of our regular and ongoing review process of stores as leases come up for renewal," Best Buy said in a statement to the Chattanooga Times Free Press on Jan. 30. "The decision to close a store is never an easy one, and we are so grateful for our Hixson-area customers who have shopped with us over the years."
