Visited the store to see if I could pick up any bulk cable instead of driving down to MicroCenter, which I had to do anyway. This formerly vibrant store was not only empty - possible during the early morning hours as it true of all retail - but it had the look of empty. There were shelves entirely bare of any product at all, never good. The Geek Squad counter was empty of systems and a very wide area of open floor, without displays, greets one at the door. This is not a good sign at all and this a large store in terms of square footage. In summary, you get that quesy-dead feeling when a retail store is dying and this one is on life support.
Really? I was at the store off of Rte 46 in West Patterson, NJ a few weeks ago in the mid afternoon on a weekday and I was surprised there was decent traffic in the store and the salesperson I dealt with was knowledgeable, helpful and couldn't have been nicer so my experience was quite different than yours.
Do not doubt that individual store locations will reflect different traffic. I have known the Palisades Mall store for years and today, for the first time, I felt the distinctly bad taste of a location gone sour. You cannot really define it but if you understand retail, you KNOW it when you see it.
Because of the "empty store" posts here, its always a marvel how many folks are still shopping in the TX BBY stores; at least from the number of cars in their parking lots, certainly looks like they are doing well...Conns competes with BBY in a few product lines, they are a TX and surrounding states chain, brick and mortar, and their stock continues to go up. But perhaps that is a function of geography and where the jobs are.
Since you know EXACTLY what you looking for why did you bother to go to several BRICK AND MORTAR and DYING store? you must buy it from BELOVED AMZN.
By the GO SHORT all the way on BBY ( DYING STORES) and make BILLIONS........
See you at $20.00 very soon.
