Sony to Shutter Online Store
Visitors to Sony’s store.sony.com online direct-sales portal will find a message on the opening page stating that days are numbered for the opportunity to buy through the site. Sony’s online store will cease taking orders on Aug. 28 – and the message encourages holders of gift cards for the site to redeem them by that date.
The message further states that Sony “will have an exciting new product website that includes our authorized retailers for your purchase preference” after that date.
Site visitors who click on the message banner are directed to a page of questions and answers that details how orders in process and backorders are being handled, among other things.
