Nokia officially closing some flagship stores in the US and UK

10 December, 2009

Nokia is obviously reorganizing its retail strategy and those rumors you may have been hearing of actual flagship stores closing are now officially confirmed. The Nokia stores in Chicago, New York, London Regent Street are getting closed, while the one in Sao Paulo will be moving.

The Finns point out that more than 90 percent of North Americans purchase their phones through carriers. Nokia will still hold on to its market positions there but will be looking for more effective utilization of other retail channels (such as large retailers - think Amazon and Best Buy).

All other Nokia shops and retail outlets around the globe should not be affected. image credit:

dont allow carriers to dictate which phone to sell. You guys need to have your own stores. Customers are fooled by carriers and they only push those phones, where they get highest commissions.
