One morning about a month ago, all employees for Future Shop show up to work but find the doors locked in all Canadian locations. One of those locations is the Future Shop Location on Monarch Drive in Orillia. Announcement comes that Best Buy that owns Future Shops is reopening at the same location in Orillia . Future Shop is no more, another company closing. Was not a basic transition as employees from Future Shop had to reapply for their jobs but had to compete with former Target employees. This does not seem to be fair on the former Future Shop employees but as life goes on, this is the cruel world of retail. As long as it does not interfere with shoppers, they really do not notice the life's of others affected. Most do not care.
