So does this mean that the Sony Store at 550 Madison Avenue will close as well?

Nothing will get closed, Sony will stay there and continue using it on a lease

Poor Sony, it's a mere shadow of its former self, they need to focus on at least getting back in the black financially. How the mighty have fallen.

Sony changed strategy 9 months ago with the new CEO. We will see it's effect on the future of Sony. I'm sure Xperia Z will help them rise again.
