16 Jul: Wisconsin store rebuilds, reopens after fire

Our Best Buy store in Kohler, Wisconsin, reopened its doors recently after damage from an electrical fire closed them in March.

In addition to new walls, flooring and paint, the store now has an expanded appliances section, a new Geek Squad consultation area and more. While the store was closed for rebuilding, employees were offered shifts at other Best Buy locations. The company also paid them for time spent volunteering in the community.

To welcome back customers and employees, the store held an event on July 6 that included photo ops with local first responders, giveaways and a live radio broadcast.
