Best Buy, which has 1,450 locations nationwide and 2,900 globally, is focusing on closing some of its hulking stores to concentrate on smaller Best Buy Mobile outlets because of two emerging trends. Sales of TVs, digital cameras and videogame consoles have weakened, while sales of tablet computers, smartphones and e-readers have increased. And with the rise of competition from Internet rivals like Amazon.com, shoppers aren't flocking to big-box stores like they used to.
good, fuck em. most expensive place to buy electronics on Earth. I hope they go bankrupt for being such a dipshit company. It's cheaper to buy anything in their store online elsewhere, plus get first class/over night shipping on said item.
I wouldn't be that upset if the Best Buy in my local area closed. I don't go there very often and when I do it's usually just to browse. As I've been able to find most of the stuff there cheaper elsewhere.
I am with the people that say they're generally expensive, but occasionally best buy busts out some sweet deals too on blu rays. Usually limited time offers. Plus they ship anything free that I buy online and you get to try stuff out in their stores, see TV's, listen to audio systems, etc.
If Best Buy changed there business ethics they could compete. The problem with Best Buy of what I see they think they can charge overprice and expect people to go and buy there stuff. The whole ship to the store is a good way to save money (technically ship it for free to your local store in ex amount of days). BB is doing ok of what I heard they are just closing the ones that are doing bad, but if BB doesn't change there style they might be losing more and more one of the reasons why Walmart had to do some changes.
The closest BB to me just recently closed. Annoying as shit, have to drive much further now, which means I'm less likely to go, and instead order stuff online. And it won't be from bestbuy.com, that's for sure.
Call Kenny Loggins. Cause you're in the Danger Zone.
places like newegg and amazon make brick and mortar stores an obsolete concept. Yeah, it's good to see something in person, so there will always be a need for stores, but just not enough need to warrant keeping 1000 stores up and running.
