Best Buy busting records on opening weekend
Of course it’s no indicator that they’re going to take the UK electronic retailing scene in their iron fist and squeeze out their competitors but Best Buy are crowing over their opening weekend’s sales at their debut store in Thurrock.
They say that the store notched up the highest number of opening weekend Best Buy sales anywhere, anytime in the known universe in the company’s entire history ever. Cor blimey, eh readers?
No doubt the figures will have been boosted by some mighty opening weekend discounts, and we're not sure how much actual profit they'll have bagged but Best Buy have even provided us all with some quotes from delighted customers…
Anthony from Purfleet said, "I've been waiting for ages since I saw Best Buy's launch announced last summer. Two weeks ago I found out it was opening today so I booked time off work to come down. I expected there to be big queues so I got down here early. I actually only came in for Avatar on Blu-Ray but now I've got two Nintendo Wiis and a hard drive – and I'm coming back later for a laptop when I've picked up the 'missus' from work."
Tom from Dartford said: "I spoke to a Blueshirt for about 10 minutes about laptops, he seemed to really know his stuff."
The ‘missus’! Blueshirts! It’s like some kind of hazy dream! Where will it all end?
