Visitors to the Finnish Nokia online store see a message that advises them to get in touch with Nokia retailers or Nokia Care, depending on their needs.

Nokia’s Finnish online store opened in July 2008.

The mobile giant has recently closed online stores for other countries as well, including Spain, France, Sweden and the Netherlands.

Nokia still has 10 web stores in operation around the globe.
