The Best Buy in Rocky Mount is on the company's chopping block. The retailer announced it's closing 50 stores nationwide, and one of them is the Best Buy in Rocky Mount.
Best Buy says they are moving away from their big box stores to smaller stores that focus on cell phone and tablet computer sales.
Employees who do not get placed in other jobs within the company will be offered severance packages. Best Buy says most of the stores they are closing will be shut down by mid-May.
