    They're beating CC in sales. Don't know why they'de close. Personally I think the majority of their merchandise is way overpriced.

    No way they're going out of business. They just built a new one here recently.

    clearance sales are not the same as closing out sales. a clearance is just when they are overstocked with product and want to get rid of it. close out sales are when the stores are closing. Even then closing sales are usually specific to a particular location, not the entire brand.

    I don't get it either...almost all of my electronics purchases end up being at CC because they have a better selection of alot of things at better prices. However, the dvd and cd selection at CC is much worse, so perhaps that helps to account for the higher BB sales.

    They are so much in the money that they built a brand new one here, it was open like 2 month and then they just up and moved it to a better location. BECAUSE THEY COULD!!!!

    Yeah I highly doubt that Best Buy is going anywhere. They seem to be going up everywhere while I see CC stores downsizing and cut stores out completely. So if anything I'd be worried about CC before BB lol.

    Yes, they're closing. But I will sell you their merchandise at a slight markup, plus shipping.
