    I work there and we were told they wanted to re aline the productivity of the company by closing some big box stores. It seems that Best Buy and Future Shop are not going to build the large size stores and move on to smaller half size ones. They wanted to make sure they did not become the 'show rooms' for online shopping like what is going on in the States.
    The company is really focusing on shifting to become more efficient with the online stuff while still having the store front. So by focusing on web sales they don't need as big of stores anymore, which would relate to why they closed the stores.
