US-based retailer Best Buy announced a closing down sale set to begin on Monday with an advertised 10 to 30 per cent off in store and online.
Loss making Best Buy had earlier announced a pull out from the UK market: "We intend to cease retail trading at our Best Buy UK branded stores & website by the 15th January 2012."
The retail stores closed over the weekend in order to prepare for the sale.
The company said that gift cards will also need to be redeemed before the 15th of January final closing date. Anyone that owns such a card would be well advised to cash in before all the best stuff goes in the sale.
