Framingham CompUSA to close

Posted by Martin Finucane February 28, 2007 02:56 PM


CompUSA Inc. says it will close its Framingham store and five of its six other stores in Massachusetts by May 31.

The closures are part of a restructuring plan that calls for shuttering more than half its stores, company spokeswoman Jessica Nunez said.

Chief executive Roman Ross cited "changing conditions in the consumer retail electronics market."

In Massachusetts, the chain also plans to close stores in Woburn, Braintree, Danvers, North Attleborough, and Brighton. The Holyoke store will remain open. Closing 126 shops will leave the chain with 103.
