Best Buy Dividing Store Making More Room For Online Orders
Best Buy Apple Valley is in the process of dividing the store in half. About halfway back as you walk in, they are installing a permanent wall. That back half of the store (in addition to the warehouse area) will be used to stage online orders which are through the roof. They have consolidated their computer, phone and appliance areas. Other remodeling is being completed as well. This smaller retail and much larger “online orders” format looks to be the new trend in many big box retailers. The entire back of Best Buy which was all the TV and home entertainment will be moved to the front to make room for expanded “online order fulfillment “ with the new wall to the left in the photo.
