Best Buy Trims Inventory
Best Buy is embracing a wide variety of measures in order to get through the recession, including cutting inventory and reducing its number of national television commercials.
That's according to an analysis in the New York Times, which also reported that the company is giving store managers more leeway to “put their personal stamp” on their stores.
In an interview with the newspaper, the company's president, Brian Dunn, said that Best Buy, “without pushing it,” is offering a no-interest-for-18-months deal to customers who purchased more than $499 worth of merchandise. The company offered a similar deal last year, but only for those purchasing one item at that price.
