Permanent closure is set for May 12.

In a statement, Best Buy said, "This was not an easy decision to make. 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."
