    If they sold hentai, this probably wouldn't be happening.



    Seriously though, the entire chain's not dying. As TheCollector said, only some of em are, so unless your place is on that list, you should be alright.

    I probably have more than half as many Best Buy stores in my immediate area alone as the number of stores that are closing across the entire country, if that provides any kind of perspective.

    There is one in my town and I'm glad it is not on the list. But back in 2004 the building suffered damage from Hurricane Ivan and Best Buy was thinking about shutting it down pernamently. But they changed their minds and did repairs.

    But last month I heard their sales are down because people are getting their HDTV's, Cd's and Dvds from the internet like Amazon where it is cheaper.

    Nope, the company itself isn't dying. Just a few stores scattered around are affected. The Best Buy here shouldn't need to worry because the parking lot is packed every. Freaking. Day.

    Ah, one of those Best Buys in Ohio is in a rather bad area, no one wants to go there because of it, I can see why they closed it down.

    Yeah, if anything, this & Future Shop look to be doing very well in my area too, even with things in general being ghost towns. Plus, 2 more just opened up relatively close to where I am, so hopefully they won't fluke out.

    Ebay:
    I know it's not the typical experience, but last week when I went to the BB in Brandon, Florida the salesboy was playing with a yo-yo the whole time he was 'helping' me. Though I wasn't done looking, he told me if I needed any more help, he'd be 'over there,' where apparently I had interrupted an important conversation about who was going to leave early. Needless to say, I walked out.
