Nokia has closed its flagship retail store in China's Shanghai which was reportedly its largest in the world shortly after it closed its store in Beijing.

On April 1st, Nokia confirmed that the store would be closing down by posting messages on Weibo, the local equivalent of Twitter.

With the closure of the flagship store, all after-sale services will be taken over by another smaller Nokia store in Shanghai.

In a statement, the company said that it "is focusing on growing its presence in operator and third-party retail outlets, rather than through our own physical stores. We are, of course, also continuously beefing up our online presence. With this in mind, our store in Shanghai was closed on 31 March."
