This article has an assessment summary page.

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 Connected[edit]

I am new to Wikipedia editing. There is nothing posted about the new Best Buy "connected" stores. I wrote a small piece in the operations section. I will supply and info required about the new program. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.109.42.116 (talk) 01:24, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Best Buy On[edit]

Found this website: Best Buy On. It's some sort of Best Buy online magazine on technology stuff [1]. Might be of interest for the article and/or its ext.links. Lots of cool articles in there too. —Preceding unsigned comment added by HMFS (talkcontribs) 02:22, 25 October 2010 (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]

Needs a section on their donations to Minnesota Forward and the resulting boycott. — Metamatic (talk) 17:03, 21 December 2011 (UTC)

Best Buy Canada has just permanently closed all Stores on Vancouver Island, British Columbia,Canada, this morning. Also, numerous Stores across Canada, closed this morning, as well, with no warning at all. C6red54 (talk) 21:34, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

Edits[edit]

I rewrote/cut down the introduction to this article. I inserted some new sources and used the cite templates from the previous ones. I'll try and work on more. Per flags, I agree it needs work. Jppcap (talk) 22:40, 14 January 2014 (UTC)

Inserting new sources/text in History. Jppcap (talk) 20:28, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
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)
