The Cleveland Indians confirmed they will close the doors of three of their four remaining team stores after the holiday shopping season.

With the increase of online sales, in-store profits have sunk to an all time low, prompting the team to retire its retail spaces in Fairview Park, North Canton, and Strongsville as of Jan. 27.

“We're evaluating all facets of our business, and we felt the market conditions are no longer economically viable” to keep the three team shops open, Curtis Danburg, the Indians' senior director of communications, told Crain's Cleveland.

The Progressive Field store will remain open.
