A few weeks ago, there was an article on public radio explaining that Best Buy was looking to streamline its stores. The idea is to move most of its customers to ordering more merchandise, thus making the physical stores smaller and more like show rooms, with less products and more focus on the Geek Squad, and customer service.

Best Buy has been losing profits each quarter, slowly sending it down the path of Circuit City. This is most likely behind the decision to re-shift its priorities to more of a service center with a showroom. It may or may not be the right move, but one thing is certain: They need to do something different! Hopefully for them, this is the right direction. At least they aren't staunchly sticking to what they've always done. That is the one path that will definitely lead to eventual bankruptcy.

Though this is a good business decision, It is a little saddening. The era of the "Electronics Mega Store" is coming to an end. Granted the showroom will still be there. Hopefully, the "trimming" of the store's size won't affect the variety of new gadgets there will be to test drive.

Besides, where else will men hang out while their wives are shop at Michael's?

Just read about @bestbuy circling the drain. Not pulling for job losses, but my sense of schadenfreude is strong. That chain just sucks.

Mom was going to buy a stove @bestbuy but we walked out because they wanted fifty bucks to deliver after 2 pm. Super rude salesman, too.
