nokia-chicagoIt’s might sad to see a once great tech giant falter and begin to fail. As they travel along their downward spiral of a decent, you start remembering all of the fond memories of years past. Such a reminiscing period will soon fall upon New York and Chicago residents who currently flock to Nokia flagship stores on a regular basis. The blood letting (read: extreme profit losses) that is killing Nokia within claimed it’s first store a couple of days ago. Tonight we learn of two more stores going the way of the dodo and returning to their roots — empty buildings with “For Sale” signs hung in the windows. The fine residents of the Big Apple and Windy City will have to find a new place to get their Nokia fix as Nokia released an official statement tonight highlighting that the company is in dire straights and this close, this close to puking red ink that the company while not the most financially sound at the moment is committed to simply keeping the lights on and the customers happy. In order to do that, the two flagship stores mentioned above will have to shut their doors for good.

It’s really sad for me because every time I set foot in Chicago I make sure to go to the Nokia store and give all of the window models a thorough training session. Though anytime I was in a Nokia store there was never more than 5 people inside. In all reality, you’d have to be blind and partially handicapped not to realize the writing was on the wall months ago. Denial is a secret killer I guess.

So what have you: A bad night getting worse as your European love fest/affair is moving away into the far away land of digital island? Or are you questioning as to why people still even buy things in brick and mortar stores to begin with? Share with us you dashingly handsome (or beautiful) reader…
