The Finnish mobile company Nokia has said a good bye to its flagship store in China, which was earlier touted as the largest store in the world. The company confirmed the news to ZDNet by saying that the store had closed at the end of last month, despite the company told the publication that it would work towards making its presence beefed at its retail and carrier partners.

“Nokia is focusing on growing its presence in operator and third-party retail outlets, rather than through our own physical stores. We are, of course, also continuously beefing up our online presence. With this in mind, our store in Shanghai was closed on 31 March,” said Nokia spokesperson Brett Young told ZDNet.

“For a while now, Nokia has been focusing on growing its presence in operator and third-party retail outlets, rather than through our own physical stores,” according to a company representative via CNET. “We are, of course, also continuously beefing up our online presence.”
