Denver Business Journal | Best Buy to close Aurora store as part of 50-store nationwide shutdown

Best Buy Co. — grappling with competition from online retailers — said Saturday it is closing a store in south Aurora as part of a nationwide closure of 50 full-sized stores.

The store to be closed is at 15800 E. Briarwood Circle, near Arapahoe and Parker roads.

Employees were told Saturday of the planned closure, Best Buy said. The store was closed Saturday and will reopen Sunday for final sales. The store will shutter for good on May 12.

“This was not an easy decision to make,” Best Buy officials said in a statement. “We chose this store carefully, and are working to ensure the impact to our employees will be as minimal as possible, while serving all customers in a convenient and satisfying way. But we also recognize the impact this news has on the people who deserve respect for the contributions they have made to our business.”
