Sony is still continuing to downsize themselves in order to become a more profitable and efficient company. A new move that hopes to move them further down that path has just been announced; the closing of 20 Sony Stores across the US. The closing of these stores will affect about 1,000 employees “across all sites”, which is about 1/3 of the staff according to Sony. After the 20 stores are shut down, there will only be 11 stores left in the US. Below is the list of stores that will be closing down;

  • Tysons, VA
  • University Village, WA
  • Galleria Dallas, TX
  • Forum Shops, NV
  • Pentagon, VA
  • Boca Raton, FL
  • Menlo Park, NJ
