Verizon Wireless announced today that they intend to shut down their app store on BlackBerry by January 2013. Verizon says that it plans to begin removing the Verizon Apps store from all BlackBerry devices, a process that’s expected to be finished by March 27, 2013.

Customers will begin receiving notifications of Verizon Apps’ demise starting this month, and it’ll also begin pulling the apps from the store that require a monthly license check.

Monthly subscriptions will end on the renewal anniversary date in December. Verizon does say that business apps in its Private Applications Store for Business will continue to be available to enterprise users, and it also says that developers will have access to app metrics during the shutdown process.
