20 Aug: Best Buy CEO Statement On Boca Raton Event

One of our customers in the Boca Raton, Florida area was tragically attacked yesterday and has since passed away. We are profoundly sorry and offer our deepest sympathies to her family. Out of respect for them, we have closed our Boca Raton store today.

Beyond working with law enforcement in any way we can, we have suspended our relationship with the small, local company that was subcontracted to deliver to the customer’s home. In the hours after we initially learned what happened, we immediately revisited our delivery and installation programs and, in the coming days, will do two things: 1) ensure all our processes were followed and 2) work with our delivery partners to do anything more we can to help ensure that this type of tragedy will not happen again.

09 May: Mom’s day is every day, gift her useful tech that lasts

We all know our moms deserve the very best. But how can we properly express our appreciation with last-minute gifts?

Fortunately, Best Buy is here to help with a top tech wish list perfect for every type of mom on the school board (and then some)!

Soccer moms

Our moms are the ultimate cheerleaders and marathon racers. They hike lawn chairs to sports meets, steer valuable cargo against parade crowds and juggle after-school equipment three times their weight. Portable chargers like the Anker PowerCore 20,000 mAh are a great way for any busy mom who’s on the go for long periods of time to stay fully charged — and fully connected — amid a packed agenda.
