Best Buy will open four new outlet stores, which feature open-box and clearance items at reduced prices, this summer and fall in select cities across the United States, one of which will be near the demolished Paradise Valley Mall.
Best Buy currently has 16 outlet stores in cities ranging from Moreno Valley, California, to Kennesaw, Georgia, to Brockton, Massachusetts. The new additional stores will be opened in Chicago, Houston, Phoenix and Manassas, Virginia
The location at 48th Street and Paradise Village Parkway will stock open-box and clearance items along with laptops, tablets, gaming equipment and cellphones at discount prices.
“These outlets unlock value by alleviating space and capacity from our core stores, and they are an important element of our circular economy strategy by providing a second opportunity for products to be resold instead of ending up in the landfill,” Damien Harmon, an executive vice president at Best Buy said during an investors’ call in March.
Here’s what customers can expect from our new outlet experience:
Our outlet stores have always offered a wide assortment of discounted larger products like major appliances and televisions. Now, every new outlet will have an expanded assortment of products, including laptops, tablets, gaming products, mobile phones and more. All from brands customers know and love, but at a discounted price.
Every new outlet will also have a Geek Squad area where you can get the support you need on your tech.
Our outlet stores are also introducing more ways to shop and get your latest tech.
