Based on the Best Buy press release, seven stores will be closed in California while Illinois and Minnesota will have six stores each.
Last month, Best Buy announced that it will be closing its so-called big box stores and will cut down 400 corporate workforce. The 2012 store closings will enable Best Buy to cut down its operation cost by $800 million.
Reports say that retail giant will replace its big box stores with 100 smaller but more profitable Best Buy Mobile stores.
Best Buy has closed two stores in Missouri and Arizona earlier this year. Majority of the 50 stores are scheduled to be closed by May 12. Three Best Buy stores will be closed late this summer.
Earlier reports say that Best Buy CEO Brian Dunn has resigned after an investigation against him was conducted by the board of directors.
