Best Buy, the chain of stores specialized in electronics, announced that it will close its operations in Mexico.
Best Buy indicated that the 49 locations it has in the country have already been closed this year and the rest will close their operations to customers in an orderly fashion as of December 31, 2020.
The US company pointed out that the cause of its withdrawal from the Mexican market was due to the effects generated by the Covid 19 in its sales, so it is not viable to continue its business in Mexico.
Regarding its inventory, the company stated that the website bestbuy.com.mx will continue to operate until it is exhausted.
The reasons why Best Buy was not successful in Mexico are several, not only Covid 19 had to do with it. They did not know how to adapt to the Mexican market and they never implemented a sales system like Amazon's, losing the commercial battle.
