Future Shop and Best Buy are consolidating as Best Buy. That means, all the products, services, and features you have come to expect from Future Shop, can be found at Best Buy and BestBuy.ca.

We thank you for your support and patronage and look forward to serving you at your nearest Best Buy store or online at BestBuy.ca.

For information on the closure, units for service, warranty or general questions, visit BestBuy.ca/questions or call 1-866-BEST-BUY (1-866-237-8289).

Future Shop has been facing stiff online competition, that has made the big box retailer less profitable in recent years.

The Thunder Bay location will re-open as a Best Buy on April 4th. Employees are being told that they can re-apply with the company for their jobs.
