Future Shop is Canada's largest consumer electronics retailer. Future Shop currently operates a total of 146 stores across all of Canada's provinces as of December 2008.

Future Shop was purchased for C$580 million by Best Buy on November 4, 2001. The company was renamed Best Buy Canada Ltd.—a wholly owned subsidiary of its American parent. They have continued to operate Future Shop as a separate division, with most locations under their original name. Future Shop continues to grow and open new stores across Canada. In December 2008, Future Shop opened its new flagship store in Edmonton at South Edmonton Common, which is currently the largest in Canada.
