In the wake of Hurricane Maria, three Best Buy stores and a distribution center in Puerto Rico all sustained significant damage. But the company’s immediate recovery efforts focused on helping employees there.
Best Buy chartered a small airplane to get badly needed supplies — including food, water and diapers — to our employees on the island. We also used it to fly employees to the U.S. mainland. In all, 47 employees and 29 family members chose to leave the island.
