BestBuy stores were demo showcase retailer for Amazon.com

BestBuy has made plans to incorporate small online stores in their retail box so that way you can order online just like you would from amazon but if you have any problems or would just like to return it you actually have a physical store that can take it in and not have to deal with shipping returns.

Over last couple of year they started adding sku's like mattresses even just to compete with online market, so will they shut down? probably not anytime soon, they might just downsize.

There are certain best buys where the service is top notch...but then you walk into some where you wonder how they managed to stay open past the third day...Seriously they truly underestimate customer service...

I used to work at the BB in Louisiana for almost seven years but left due to the availability mandates they put in place in order to cut back on part-timers and reduce some of the damage incurred from last years' huge profit loss. So this move doesn't surprise me. I can't speak on other stores but the store I was in and the surrounding ones were big on hiring young adults, usually 20-33 years old who were either in college or college graduate because they were smart enough to realize that most customers don't want to come in there and ask some old dude about something because it's automatically that they're not in touch with what's new and current( kinda like the guy that called a Zune an iPod lol). Personally, I think that the main problem was them opening more than one store in most major cities- there's no need and the business model doesn't fit that because it's a specialty electronic store, not a Wal-mart. We have two in Baton Rouge, and Best Buy Mobile. The standalone and BBM are k!lling the one that's built with Target, simply because most people automatically go to the standalone first. I think Best Buy will always stay in business as long as they cut it back to one store per city like they were before, and streamline the merchandise because with a lot of the stuff we had was stuff that I would scratch my head and wonder who did the research and thought this was something that we needed to carry smh? Even though Amazon is out there k!lling it, most people are still going to go buy from BB simply because one, the majority of the customers don't either feel comfortable buying stuff online or don't know how to enough to want to, like my mom who matter how you tell that it's easy to she won't smh. Two, most people that come in there are impulse buyers and won't make the time or effort to research first, all they know is that they want it and they want it then without having to wait for it to ship to them.

half the ppl that are working there are just standing around. Should start firing a bunch of ppl and only have a certain amount of ppl on the floor, cuz when I 1st walk into one I usually see 10 ppl standing around then go to a section n see like 5 more doing nothing and so on

Just purchased a tv for $500 less at amazon. I usually go to best buy to look at the items in person and then I purchase online. Most of the time they are more worried about selling their services....warranty, calibration, etc. than the actual product.
