    BusinessInsider: 10 Brands that will Disappear in 2010

    No issue with your numbers.

    I think the problem is more one of business model. BBY has fewer, large, big ticket stores with competitive prices and a much lower gross margin. I view it as a destination, not an impulse store.

    RSH has many small stores, high gross margin (2x BBY because of very high prices) and lots of small items.

    What would BBY sell in RSH outlets? Why do they need them? Is there any kind of synergy here?

    If BBY decides to run RSH as a separate, non integrated division, why will they do any better than RSH?

    Just some considerations.
