DEPTFORD, N.J.- Best Buy, in conjunction with the National Association of Broadcasters, on Monday held a nationwide series of training workshops in the DTV transition. With the transition exactly three months away, Dealerscope attended one such session at the store here, and spoke with a store employee about the store's efforts.
The session Dealerscope attended, during the lunch hour on a weekday, did not actually attract any customers, although a few patrons in the store walked by and asked questions. A customer assistance supervisor at the store, Jason Boss, explained to Dealerscope how the store is dealing with the transition.
The display set up as part of the training session included converter boxes and antennas for sale, as well as applications for the government's converter box program and a TV for demonstration. Best Buy sells three converter boxes, all of which are for slightly higher than the $40 amount of the coupons.
