JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMIZ)
Best Buy will not renew its lease and will close the Jefferson City store on Oct. 30.
The closure is a part of the regular and ongoing review of stores and their lease renewals, according to Kevin Flanagan, a spokesperson with Best Buy.
Flanagan said in a release, “The decision to close a store is never an easy one, and we are so grateful for our Jefferson City area customers who have shopped with us over the years.”
The store initially opened in Oct. 2006 and 15 full-time employees and multiple part-time employees.
Officials say those employees will be able to obtain other jobs within Best Buy before Oct. 30.
With the Jefferson City store closing, Columbia will have the only Best Buy store in Mid-Missouri.
