Employees of Colorado's five Media Play stores will lose their jobs, along with nearly two-thousand other workers, as the stores' parent company shutters the chain for good.
Minnesota-based Musicland Group Incorporated says it'll close all 61 Media Play locations across the country by late January.
The Colorado stores are located in Colorado Springs, Aurora, Westminster and Littleton.
Musicland spokeswoman Laurie Bauer says liquidating Media Play is "unfortunate but necessary," because it's been unable to find a niche in the marketplace.
Media Play sells CDs, DVDs, video games, books, computer gear and other items. It's a sister chain of Sam Goody, and Suncoast Motion Picture Company.
Media Play opened in 1992, and operates in 18 states.
