A site filter to show me what's in store

Let me first say, I think the marketplace affiliate integration in the site is a cool thing...

But frankly, it sometimes is a bit aggravating.

For example.

Tonight, as about midnight, my power supply on my main PC died. I frankly can not leave it down for several days to wait for shipping of a new one.

So I load up pages for several local retailers, and electronics stores, to see what's being offered.

This way, when a decent shopping hour comes around, I am armed with an idea of where I am going, and what I am looking to purchase.

 

so I hit the best buy site, and frankly, am stopped in my tracks. Sure, it is cool to have the marketplace affiliates listed, but there should be a simple way for me to exclude those results, when I am looking for products that might be in my actual local store... As well as a way to see whether a specific product is in at a specific store. There are about a dozen different stores in my relatively local area... Easily within what I am willing to drive to go get this power supply in the morning.

 

granted, that's because of the time saved by not having to drive to each and every one of them, along with a dozen OTHER stores to make my purchase. One of the basic reasons for a website, and the internet in general really, is for it's uses to simplify shopping.

 

frankly, the marketplace results make it MORE difficult for me to shop what's in my local stores.

Because of this, I will most likely be purchasing from a competitor, since they at least list what I can go and buy from them tomorrow on their website

I certainly do hear where you are coming from on this. You can get rid of all Marketplace options by clicking the "Best Buy Items" link on the left side search parameters, and to see if it's in your local store just click the Check Stores link on the product page after inputting your zip code.

That isn't good enough. I just got home from buying a Razer Naga mouse at Target of all places because at least they had an easy way to automatically limit searches to availability in a particular store without having to go to every product page. Think about this: it literally takes me 5 minutes to drive to Target and Best Buy. It takes me a good 30 seconds to go through product page to store availability. If I have 5 misses on products that aren't available, I could have already been halfway to the store. I searched and found this page before I got irked at the poor design and picked a different store. I only commented because I was about to close this tab with my new mouse. I still love Best Buy! ... for browsing while my wife is in TJMaxx Smiley Wink

I completely agree with you @Agility25! This is a large shortcoming in their site. Even Radioshack (RIP) was better at this. Smiley Sad
