I heard over the weekend, Best Buy was closing some stores; well you can start with store:
FORUM TX Store 181
8210 Agora Pkwy
Selma, TX 78154
On Friday March 30 around 6:30pm, My Wife, a family friend and I, went to Best Buy to purchase a tablet. While there we settled on a Kindle Fire. I would say about 10-15 min passed waiting for assistance from a customer service rep. Can’t state exactly how many customer service reps were available, but the computer section was not undated with customers. We kept busy, looking at other products. Finally a customer service rep came over and enquired if we needed assistance. We responded that we were interested in the Kindle Fire and needed more information. As she started to assist us, she was called away, by a gentleman whom I assumed was assisting another customer(s). She stated to the gentleman, that she was assisting us, he in turn told her she needed to assist his customer 1st. At this point we left Best Buy. We bought
the Kindle Fire and some movies (all of which could have been purchased at Best Buy) at Target, we spent $300+. I’m glad Best Buy is in a financial state they can afford to lose revenue and customers.
So far this year between my wife and me, we have spent some were in the area of $2000 (TV, Computer, Printer, movies and gift cards) in Best Buy, and in the past have had no real issue to speak of.
If this is the service that Best Buy is giving, WE DO have Wal-Mart, Sears, Target, Office Depot/Max and even Radio Shack
