Best Buy officials announced Saturday that its store in the Millard area will close by mid-May.
The store was closed Saturday but is to reopen Sunday for final sales.
The electronics and appliances retailer announced March 29 that it would be closing 50 stores this year as part of what it called its "transformation strategy." The Wall Street Journal said the electronics retailer was trying "to shrink its massive footprint of about 1,100 big-box locations in the United States."
Two stores closed already (one in Kansas City, Mo., and one in Scottsdale, Ariz.), and five Twin Cities stores and one San Antonio store had already been notified they would close later this year.
On Saturday, the company confirmed the remaining 42 store locations that will close, including the store at 12210 K Plaza.
No other Nebraska or Iowa stores were on the list.
There are six other Best Buy stores in the Omaha area.
Employees and customers were notified Saturday morning of the retailer's decision.
Kelly Groehler, a spokeswoman for Best Buy, said employees will get help finding other positions inside the company. "If they don't find new positions, or if they choose not to work at a different location, a transition including severance packages will be available."
The company didn't disclose how many workers would be affected, but it has more than 180,000 workers, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Customers currently doing business with the store near 120th and L Streets were being contacted Saturday, the company said.
"This was not an easy decision to make," the company said in a statement. "We are working to ensure the impact to our employees will be as minimal as possible, while serving all customers in a convenient and satisfying way."
The company had earlier announced plans to shift away from its big-box formula by remodeling some large stores, shuttering 50 others and opening new smaller stores focused on selling mobile phones and tablets.
The company statement concluded: "Our previously announced retail store actions are intended to increase points of presence, while decreasing overall square footage, for increased flexibility. ... We are committed to making it easier for customers to shop with us, whenever and wherever they want."
