I have always attempted to purchase products from bricks and mortar but am realizing that do to a lack of simple basic customer service skills why it is just as easy and more customer service friendly going online. I have attempted to contact my local store (Spring Valley in Columbia, SC) and have spent an hour on the phone (over multiple attempted call attempts that leave me stranded listening to music for more than 15 minutes or stranded with no sound on the phone) never actually being able to talk to one single live person for what should be a 30 second conversation/question. This has ruined any desire I have to shop and purchase anything at Best Buy.

Welcome to the Best Buy Community forums. I appreciate you reaching out to us here. Waiting on hold is one of the least fun things that you can do, and I'm sorry for those long hold times. I assure you that is not at all typical of what calling us is like.
Are you still looking to get your question answered? If so, I'd be happy to see if I can help you out with that here.
