The Source @ Coral Centre is closed

Looks like The Source at the Coral Centre has closed down. The sign on the building is gone I noticed yesterday. That location never seemed very busy.

It's been closed for a couple of weeks now. Went there to look for something that the mall location didn't have and was disappointed. I would have rathered the mall location close.

Corral The Source

Was sorry to see this, I really hope that staff have access to other job prospects either with their other store in Brandon or within the large parent company (Bell).  
 
Don't know the exact circumstances around them closing but I imagine being so close to Future Shop made life difficult for a store that was offering a lot of products that crossed over yet wasnt as big. Still there were a couple times when on the hunt for an obscure thing (e.g. a specific type of battery) where they were the place that had it.  
 
The mall store is to me a different story and I imagine has opportunity to pick up a few more sales once Target (and its electronics dept) closes.

The Source

is owned by Radio Shack which made an announcement a few weeks back, they were closing their doors in Canada. I saw that on CBC so there's a chance we can still find that news bit on their site.
