“Popular audio brand Bose has announced it is closing a significant number of its stores. The Verge reports that the company made the decision due to the popularity of online shopping and reduced consumer interest in brick-and-mortar stores.”

The original Bose Wave Radio was only available through mail order... in those pre-internet sales days.  Now they have the problem of trying to retreat from the Malls and High streets to revert to what they did 25 years ago.

We have a Bose Store next to where I live and from what I can tell people visit the store to try out the products and then buy online. However, Bose also has pop-up stores inside major stores like Best Buy, where they focus on their portable systems and sound bars etc. Bose also tried and quickly exited the TV market several years ago...

B&O in my life 😊: 


  • Beolab 8002 + Beolab 2 + Beosound Core with Essence Remote (Office)
  • Beolab 6000 + Beolab 11 + Beosound Core with Essence Remote (Bedroom)
  • Beoplay A9 Mk2 (Living Room)
  • Beosound 1 with wireless dock (Portable)
  • Beosound Balance (Dining)
  • Beoplay H95 (Focused listening, travel)
  • Beoplay H9 (3rd gen) (retired)
  • Beoplay P6 (Portable)
  • Beotime wall clock (hallway entrance)
  • BMW X5 50i with B&O Audio Package (Commute/drive)
