Too bad, I have often went there to see an item in person before ordering online.

Wait, are you telling me Best Buy sells computer stuff?

Well, those were the days...

Although I have gotten a few free cables from the Geeksquad desk. Hmmm, maybe I'm part of their problem...

After they got bought-out, they raised their prices and priced themselves out of the market. The only thing I've purchased from them since then was a dishwasher because they had the model I wanted in stock. And I needed it right away!

I agree, their PC hardware and accessories really took a nose dive some years ago. Cost control most likely.

only reason I don't buy at best buy often is because everything there is like twice as expensive and they try to sale for more then what the product is worth usually like 30-100$ more. Which is why I shop at amazon all the time now. Only good thing they have in my opinion is there warranties they offer.

Also I believe many of you will find this interesting and just want to share this video saw it a couple days ago

I haven't been to Best Buy in a long time, but I rather like the idea that I could if I wanted to. I wish those articles listed exactly which stores are going to close, because we only have one locally.

There's a few Australian retailers (Dick Smiths, WoW, Clive Peters) somewhat similar to best Buy which are closing down to due to pretty much the same reasons.

The rest are now scrambling to gain an 'online market' element.

It makes one wonder if buying online will always be a place to find better prices? At least local stores gives one a baseline for comparison.
