Best Buy Closing Only One Washington Store – NOT In Kennewick

On the heels of announcements from retail giant Best Buy that some stores will be closing, people of the Mid Columbia immediately began wondering if Kennewick was on the list.

According to published reports, 50 stores will be shuttered, but only one in Washington — an outlet in Vancouver. The closings will be as follows:

  • California: 7
  • Illinois: 6
  • Minnesota: 6
  • Arizona: 1
  • Missouri: 1

Best Buy says it will attempt, wherever possible, to find new jobs for displaced workers.

CEO Brian Dunn resigned Tuesday after the company began “investigating his conduct.”

No word if that investigation is related to any store closings.

The store is attempting to cut about $250 million in expenses.
