Best Buy Plans Up to 1,000 Mobile Stores
Best Buy will open as many as 1,000 new Best Buy mobile locations, CEO Brian Dunn told the Financial Times in an interview over the weekend.
Dunn said in the interview that the number of eventual Best Buy Mobile stores will be "somewhere between here and 1,000." The company currently has 77 such stores.
A Minneapolis Star Tribune story last month reported Best Buy was planning to open new stores, but placed the number at only 50. Best Buy has been rumored to be interested in purchasing RadioShack, which operates the sort of small, usually mall-based stores that Best Buy uses for Mobile locations.
