Want to shop for Sony products at the mall? Chances are, you won’t be able to soon, Sony said this afternoon. About two-thirds of its U.S. stores are going bye-bye as part of a wide-ranging company restructuring it announced earlier this month. The company also confirmed they would reduce staff by a third by the end of 2014, cutting approximately 1000 employees across all businesses.

“While these moves were extremely tough, they were absolutely necessary to position us in the best possible place for future growth,” said Mike Fasulo, President and COO of Sony Electronics. “I am entirely confident in our ability to turn the business around, in achieving our preferred future, and continue building on our flawless commitment to customer loyalty through the complete entertainment experience only Sony can offer.”
