Best Buy plans to close its Moline store in the fall. The company has decided not to renew its lease for the store, which is located near South Park Mall.
But the Best Buy in Davenport will remain open. A spokesman says Davenport's retail market is "dominant in this region." And Best Buy plans to continue serving the entire Quad Cities area.
On Sunday, the company notified about 35 employees at the Moline store that it will close on November 3rd. They'll be able to apply for openings at other stores. And workers who don't find other positions with Best Buy will receive severance packages.
The Best Buy store in Moline first opened in 1987.
