Best Buy Reimagines Itself for the New Digital Era

Samsung Stores featuring smartphones & tablets are now almost universal at Best Buy | TabTimes

In its just released 2014 fourth quarter results, the big box retailer said the store-within-a-store concept is in high gear noting it has opened 1,400 Samsung Stores and 600 Windows stores out of a total of 1,495 retail locations in the U.S. 

Each Samsung Experience Shop at Best Buy features the company’s smartphone and tablets in a dedicated space, just as Apple products also have their own area.

Best Buy may have figured out a way to survive by setting itself up as the hands-on brick and mortar display and shopping front end for Samsung, Apple, and Windows machines.

I know I go there  more often than I used to, for that very reason.  And if you watch the sales, quite often you can walk out of a BB with what you want cheaper than buying it online.  Also, their buy-online, store pickup deal is quite efficient.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
