    Best Buy in Trouble?

    Giant electronics retailer Best Buy announced plans to close 50 stores in the U.S. as it refocuses its operations around mobile, Yahoo News reported.

    They need an interior decorator.
    All the stores are dark and drab.

    I've never liked Best Buy stores. I used to love going into CompUSA but they went belly up a few years ago.

    I buy my electronics and appliances from a gal named Carla Calvo Gonzales.
    The freezer part of my new fridge went on the blink so she brought over a floor model chest freezer to loan it to me until the tech came and fixed it.
    Do NOT try that at Homeless Despot, Worst Buy or any other of your bullshit murkin box stores.
    I don't look for bahhhhhhhhginz. I want a real company owned by real people.

    It's just a matter of time.

    They're a showroom for Amazon.

    It's too bad.
