Sony Ericsson to close UK retail store


Posted on October 1st, by Budi Putra in archive. No Comments

Due to its unprofitable business, Sony Ericsson has decided to close its only UK based flagship retail store later this year. The large store, based in London’s posh Kensington area was opened in late 2006 as a joint venture with mobile phone retailer, Carphone Warehouse.

“The dominance of big multiple chains and operator stores in the UK market contributed to make it difficult for Sony Ericsson’s direct retail ambitions in the UK,” said Lianne Norry, the company’s VP for retail marketing.
