Future Shop in Alberta: What's closing, what's changing

Future Shop is no more, with plans to close locations across the country and turn others into Best Buy stores, see how the announcement affects Alberta.

Future Shop will be shuttering 66 stores across Canada, and turning another 65 into Best Buy stores, the company announced Saturday. 

Ten of the closures will be in Alberta, mostly in Edmonton and Calgary. Seven other stores will be shut down for a week so they can be converted into Best Buys.
