According to Merced Best Buy, the store is scheduled to close in early March.
The closure is due to company representatives not being able to reach an agreement with the landlord.
Over 20 full-time employees will be affected according to an employee at this store.
Best Buy is trying to find a new location to open in Merced before the end of the year.
According to information on http://www.LoopNet.com, Ashley Furniture appears to be taking the current spot of the Best Buy building, also the Pier 1 expected to close this month shows that Party City will take that spot.
Work World is in negotiations with the landlord for the spot next to Big 5 Sporting Goods according to the site.
