02 Apr: Best Buy statement on voter access

This moment in our country’s history is fraught with political and social division. There are increasingly few things we can all agree on, but one, we believe, is that the bedrock of the democracy we love is the right to a free and fair election. An election cannot be free nor fair if every eligible voter is not given a full chance to vote, or if laws exist that make it harder to do so. 

To the extent that proposed pieces of legislation are designed to make it more difficult for eligible Americans to cast a ballot, we offer our strong opposition and urge legislators to vote no.

We are offering paid time off for any employee who gets a COVID-19 vaccination, as well as additional sick time if side effects from getting vaccinated. Best Buy is not requiring employees to get the COVID-19 vaccine, but strongly encourages them to consider doing so for their safety and the safety of loved ones and co-workers.

29 Jan: Video series showcases teens’ big dreams

Walter “Twinky” Springs was first inspired to pick up a camera when he saw his mom watering flowers. He wanted to capture the beauty he saw in that moment.

He was nervous when he first started exploring photography because he didn’t really know what he was doing. But that feeling changed when he met Adrian, a mentor at his local Best Buy Teen Tech Center in Denver.

“He just taught me everything he knew, and I had to take advantage of that,” Twinky said.

16 Nov: How to create your own restaurant or spa experience, right at home

This year, our homes became much more than just living spaces. They became our offices, day care centers, yoga studios and everything in between.

We might not have seen it coming, but this shift has taught us that we’re resilient beings, capable of adapting to fit our needs.

These needs come in many forms, like setting up comfortable spaces to work or to relax. Renovations and upgrades have surged in the past six months as many people seek to create a safe haven of sorts.
