Samsung isn't having much luck lately, after firing some of its key executives not too long ago and a huge 60% drop in profits, and citing a decline in sales, the company has closed the doors of its flagship Experience Store in London's Westfield Stratford shopping center.

The store in question was one of the big ones, located in one of the busiest parts of the mall, and was usually the first store in the UK to sell flagship devices like the Galaxy S5 or Galaxy Note 4. In a statement to The Verge, Samsung said that the decision on closing this store would not affect the other Experience Stores across the UK.

Samsung said to The Verge "We remain fully committed to the operation of the remaining nine Samsung Experience Stores across the UK, and wish to reassure our customers that those stores will not be affected by this decision."
