Sony is pulling the plug on its 14 retail locations in Canada.
The company informed employees at multiple locations on Thursday that it will be closing up shop in the next six to eight weeks.
A spokesperson from Sony Canada confirmed the move to CTV News. Sony refused to give a reason for the closure.
Sony says 90 employees will be affected.
Sony has reportedly decided to move toward an online-only retail format.
The company has already shut a number of Canadian locations, including a store at the Eaton Centre in Toronto.
Sony has retail locations in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Quebec City.
