10 Mar: Best Buy Supports E-Fairness

MINNEAPOLIS, March 10, 2011 – Best Buy Co., Inc. (NYSE:BBY), a leading retailer of consumer technology, today praised Governor Pat Quinn for signing the “Main Street Fairness Act” which will help the state’s retail merchants compete on a level playing field with online-only retailers, and help maintain and grow retail jobs in Illinois.

The legislation requires online-only retailers with an Illinois presence through affiliates to collect and remit sales taxes due from consumers that traditional brick-and-mortar stores already collect. Best Buy makes significant investments in property, payroll and philanthropy in Illinois communities.
