Chicago area stores will reopen this week
The back-to-school season is coming and some major retail stores are gearing up to reopen. Apple, Williams Sonoma, and GameStop are among the companies that have already begun to open stores. Some of these reopenings are rolling while others are limited to certain locations.
American Eagle has reopened 43 of its stores. The retailer plans to reopen 600 more by the end of May. It also plans to implement new health and safety measures in order to ensure a safer shopping experience. Customers will be asked to wear masks while in the store, and the company will sanitize the fitting rooms.
Best Buy will reopen its doors on Thursday night at 5:00pm. Customers will be able to browse through hundreds of deals. However, only those with an appointment will be able to purchase merchandise. These appointments are available online or via the Best Buy app.
On Black Friday, Best Buy will open its doors at 8 a.m. and offer deals until 1 a.m. You’ll be able to take advantage of doorbusters like 4K TVs for $150 to $350 off, smartphones for as little as $20, and video games for as much as $70. Additionally, you’ll be able to shop in the comfort of your own home via the company’s curbside pickup service.
While it’s not clear how many of its remaining Best Buy Mobile stores will reopen this week, the company has stated that it will try to re-position its employees. A personal shopper will help customers find products and walk them through the check-in process.
Nvidia RTX 30 series stock as MSRP
If you’ve been waiting for a good deal on a Nvidia RTX 30 series graphics card, you might be happy to know that Best Buy is holding a nationwide sale on graphics cards tomorrow. It’s possible that your local Best Buy store will have some in stock, but you should be prepared for a lengthy wait.
The retailer has yet to announce a list of products on sale, but you can expect to see various models from different brands. For instance, the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is not a particularly exciting card, but it does offer an opportunity to pick up a graphics card for a reasonable price.
Getting the best deals on gaming hardware has become increasingly difficult in recent years, and if you’re looking for a new GPU, you’ll need to plan ahead. That’s because Nvidia has been having a tough time keeping up with consumer demand. To help, the company has implemented a crypto limiter on its newer hardware.
A lot of people are excited about the opportunity to buy the latest and greatest graphics card from Nvidia, but not all of them will have a shot at getting the best deal. That’s why Best Buy is trying to make its GPU sales a little more manageable. They’ve set up a system of tickets, which customers must obtain from a designated employee.
In the end, however, the true test of a good deal will be whether you’re able to get your hands on a RTX 30 series graphics card at a reasonable price. With the competition stiff, you’ll want to show up early.
5,000 workers laid off this month
If you are a big fan of home appliances or electronics, you might have heard about Best Buy’s recent job cuts. These layoffs are expected to help the company boost profits.
In the past year, Best Buy has cut its workforce by 17%, from 121,000 employees to just over 100,000. The company is preparing for a changing consumer landscape, with more sales going digital. It is also expanding its order fulfillment strategy.
Best Buy is also restructuring its stores, allowing them to serve as hubs for online and home delivery orders. It will pilot a new design that will cut down on the size of the store’s sales floor.
As more customers shop online, it has become important for retailers to create an appropriate physical space for home delivery orders. Best Buy is piloting new store layouts that use more floor space for shipping orders. They will also provide more flexibility to employees.
The company plans to retrain workers to help with online orders. Additionally, it is boosting staffing numbers with seasonal workers.
According to the company’s earnings report, online sales grew 90% to reach a record $6.7 billion. Best Buy executives expect online sales to grow to 43% of total domestic sales in 2021.
Earlier this month, Best Buy laid off 5,000 full-time store workers. They will be replaced with 2,000 part-time workers. This change is part of the company’s plan to close more big-box stores.
Black Friday sales
For many retailers, this year’s holiday shopping season was a success. Retailers racked up a record $52.4 billion in sales over the Thanksgiving weekend. The National Retail Federation estimates that 152 million shoppers will shop on Black Friday weekend.
As usual, retailers are working hard to lure in customers. Some are running promotions that run through the entire weekend. Other are opening their doors on Thanksgiving itself, as stores like Target did last year.
Best Buy is one of the first retailers to roll out its Black Friday deals. They aren’t hosting an event, but their website has hundreds of offers available.
For a limited time, the retailer is offering a special deal on a big-screen smart 4K television. In addition, the company is running a Cyber Monday sale that features Apple Watches, $200 off MacBook Pros and 50 percent off Beats Wireless headphones.
The chain retailer also carries a huge assortment of brand name electronics and appliances. The company is also promising the lowest price on the product all year long.
While Best Buy has a lot of competition in the market, it still manages to offer some great Black Friday deals. This includes its “20 Days of Doorbusters” promotion. During this period, the store will unveil a new tech doorbuster each day through December.
Best Buy is also boosting its earnings outlook for the full year. Analysts say the company has a strong start to the holiday season.
