you should never wish another person to lose their job in this economy...no matter how broke you are and can't afford to shop at their place of employment...

Because alot of people don't automatically think of Best Buy for buying games... as sad as it is...it's Usually Gamestop/Amazon...they think of Best Buy for stuff like TV's, movies/CD's/ computers... and Best Buy doesn't advertise their trade in's...which is how Gamestop makes most of their money (buy it cheap sell it for more), and add on the fact that Best Buy doesn't take console trade ins at their stores it's online only and people don't really make BB their first choice...

The 5 years i lived in Colorado they were literally my second home...haven't been there much this year though...

its just the fact that they are idiots and clueless to the items they are selling
how many times have u walked into best buy and knew more than the sales person??
I don't know...because I don't ask questions about the stuff I buy from them unless it's "Where is this at"...I do my research before buying so I know what I want... I don't go in there and say "hey does this out put in 1080p" or some other dumb a.ss question ... don't buy if you don't know what you are buying

All the time you want to know why?

They dont hire young adults who actually know their sh*t

INSTEAD

They hire grown a.ss adults who refer to a zune as a ipod.

They knew this was going to happen 5 years ago when Circuit City and other Multimedia/entertainment stores were closing. They actually are staying around ALOT longer than people had originally thought they would.

They should close these stores IMO... Best Buy is useless besides TV's/Audio equipment and sh*t... Anything else you can find for better prices online...

If it was up to me, I would completely close all these stores and start online markets with people having the choice to pay for shipping or pick it up at various pick up centers... Saves time and prevents stupid sales people from trying to upsell...

Amazon k!lling these stores. Consumers are becoming too smart. I used to like shopping at best buy, but only to get a feel for a product before I ordered it online for a discounted price. I wouldn't be surprised if 10 years from now all of these electronic stores were replaced with online markets.

I hate Best Buy. Store is such a rip off. $35, $40 blu-rays. Everything they sell is always twice as much as it is on Amazon. Their own greed is what cost them. Oh and lets not forget the 5 dollar hdmi cables that they sell for $50.
