Evanston Best Buy to remain open

Big-box retailer Best Buy announced over the weekend the full list of stores it plans to close this year as it struggles with competition from online commerce — and the store in Evanston was not on the list.

Six stores in the Chicago area will be closing though, including ones in Addison, Deerfield, Matteson, Mundelein and West Dundee, as well as one at 8900 S. Lafayette Ave. in Chicago. Nationwide the company is in the midst of closing 50 stores.

In addition to the Evanston store, at 2301 Howard St., Best Buy has about nine other remaining stores within roughly a 10 mile radius of Evanston.
