Best Buy Adds Fitness Products
Best Buy said Friday that it is now carrying a line of health and fitness products at 600 of its stores. Locations carrying the products have added a 30-foot-long area in the store. The move represents an expansion of a smaller, earlier pilot program.
The products include earbuds, headphones, yoga mats, scales, blood pressure monitors, pedometers and other products, from such vendors as Gaiam, GoFit, H2O Audio, MIO, Polar, Sportline and Yurbuds.
"We were encouraged by the enthusiastic response we saw from our customers during the initial pilot of these health and fitness products,” Chris Koller, vice president of the Portable Electronics Solutions Group at Best Buy, said as part of the announcement.
