Best Buy Makes Bronx Debut
Best Buy on Saturday was scheduled to open its first-ever store in the New York City borough of the Bronx. The store, located on E. Fordham Rd., is expected to add 150 jobs in that community.
At a grand opening celebration Saturday, basketball legend-turned-entrepeneur Earvin "Magic" Johnson was scheduled to attend and deliver opening remarks, while Best Buy representatives are set to present $10,000 checks to a pair of charities, The Pointe and The Wildcat Service Corporation.
In addition, the first 50 customers in line were to receive a $20 gift certificate to the store.
