Nokia's closing its two US Flagship stores.

Wow. That’s about all the words I have after learning that Nokia is planning to close its two retail stores in New York and Chicago.

While I’ve never been to the Chi-town location, the Flagship store on Fifth Ave. has been the site of many blogger meetups and events, as well as being an overall cool place to visit. It’s a shame to say the least.

The move comes on the heels of the company closing one of its two London store locations, and leaves Nokia with little more than an online web presence in the USA.

“Nokia said it would close the stores in New York and Chicago as part of its retail strategy revamp to better focus on co-operation with telecommunications operators and with retailers.”
