Best Buy will be closing its location near Great Northern Mall in Clay later this year.

Jeff Shelman, a spokesman for the electronics company, told CNYCentral on Monday that they decided not to re-sign the lease for the property on Route 31.

The store's last day of operation will be Saturday, Nov. 3, when the lease runs out, Shelman said.

Best Buy has two other locations in the Syracuse area — one in DeWitt and at Destiny USA — the latter of which is less than 10 miles away from the Clay location.

"We believe the store at Destiny can serve those customers," Shelman said.

Best Buy in Clay is located about a mile west of Great Northern Mall, which has seen a slew of retail stores leave the property in recent years.

Toys R Us, also located near the mall, closed its location in June after the company went out of business.
