In the Canadian marketplace The Futureshop was one of the worst players. They went out of their way to destroy other businesses and companies, as could be told by the amount of lawsuits they had filed against them over the years. They had questionable ethics but for a time they were winners of the marketplace.
But the marketplace changes. when they were bought by Best Buy they created this stupid illusion of competition by opening a Best Buy directly opposite a Futureshop. Futureshop had the better price, but Best Buy actually had the stock. We all saw through this pathetic attempt and over time just stop trusting them. Best Buy retracted last year, they're killing the name off this year which still boils down to slimming down the stores and retracting the business again.
Overall a marketplace that has spoken, and dumping a crappy company. How much longer before we watch the liquidators come in and clear out the morally and financially bankrupt Best Buy.
