Langford’s Future Shop being rebranded as Best Buy

Store will reopen this coming Saturday flying parent company's colours

Not much will change except the name, according to the information on Best Buy’s website.

The Future Shop store on McCallum Road in Langford, which closed last week, is set to reopen on Saturday (April 4) as a Best Buy store.

The Langford and Saanich Future Shop locations, two of five on Vancouver Island, were among 131 stores across Canada that closed on March 28.  Best Buy Canada, a subsidiary of Best Buy Co. Inc., owner and operator of Best Buy and Future Shop, indicated that 66 Future Shop locations will close permanently, while 65 would continue to operate under the Best Buy banner, including the five Island locations. Best Buy stores will honour Future Shop gift cards and warranties.

A Best Buy that opened in 2010 at Westshore Town Centre in Langford closed in January 2013.
