total store count is ~6K[edit]

It looks like the first paragraph says there are around 1,100 total stores, but there are more than 6,000. I just talked to the CFO and noticed this inconsistency. Someone better at editing than I should find a real source and fix it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 209.147.97.156 (talk) 01:02, 15 December 2011 (UTC)

As someone who worked on the Best Buy Project Teams for nearly 13 years, specifically building and opening new stores, I can definitely state with fully certainty that Best Buy does NOT have 6,000 stores and that the total count is somewhere closer to 1,100 as stated. When I first started in Oct 1996 the count was at 345. They probably a bit less than that now since they closed 55 US stores, all UK stores and their 2 China locations in the last 3 years. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 61.31.134.123 (talk) 20:15, 28 October 2012 (UTC)

Best Buy Israel[edit]

Looking for confirmation of story from Best Buy Israel store worker: "Best Buy Israel is not connected with Best Buy America. Best Buy America was going to sue Best Buy Israel for using the Best Buy name, but found that Best Buy Israel began in Afula, Israel two years prior to Best Buy America name change." Unable to find history of Best Buy Israel in print to confirm or debunk. ShumDavar (talk) 12:18, 29 December 2010 (UTC)

No Mail In Rebates On Mobile[edit]

This should be cleared up. I happen to know for a fact that retailers such as Walmart and RadioShack also feature the "no mail-in rebate" offer on all of their handsets. Could we get this fixed? Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 208.52.163.2 (talk) 03:08, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

Criticisms[edit]

I removed some sections of the Corporate affairs. It was confusing and disjointed. Much of it had little to no citations and was promotional. Jppcap (talk) 21:42, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
Article is not outdated and contains 80+ sources, I'm removing the tags. Jppcap (talk) 19:28, 25 January 2014 (UTC)
Loss of customer product: This lawsuit was covered in the press, but was dismissed. I don't think this is a notable lawsuit. Is this notable? Jppcap (talk) 19:39, 25 January 2014 (UTC)

Store brands[edit]

Is Dynex still extant? I never see products with this label in-store any more.
