The Next Battle: Best Buy vs. Walmart
Now that Circuit City is no more, Best Buy now sees Walmart as its primary rival, and is planning its strategy for the coming months accordingly. That's according to a Wall Street Journal analysis published Monday.
When new Best Buy CEO Brian Dunn takes over in June, he plans to make the stores more interactive, as part of a strategy to offset Walmart's deep discounts. Dunn has taken a tour of stores to search for ideas before he takes over the company.
