He did have a some motion 4's He wanted 154 a piece. Which is not to bad but not what I am willing to pay..


But if you do plan on still going out there let me know. Like I said there is 6 days left he said after that destruction begins of the room.
Check your PM. I may head out on Sunday to grab that last Denon 4520CI.

If you find any stores let me know.

It was bought for resale, its a tax exempt purchase, especially since its a natural part of his business, there are also many exemptions from having to collect taxes upon resale.

Best Buy Boca Raton has same sale going on. Two PC/Networking customers told me they have some good deals and up to 60% off. They are also remodeling Magnolia. One picked up a Pioneer SC-75 with remote and mic. No box. $ 525.00 with 10% back on Best Buy Credit card. The other picked up Denon 4520CI $ 800.00 complete with box and all accessories. He took no interest for 12 months.

Negotiate.. The closer to 9:00 pm the better deals you get. I sent my employee down to Pembroke Pines on Saturday night, I was stuck on a IT job in Fort Pierce (100 miles away) to grab a Pioneer Elite SC-77 for a client. I landed it for $ 600.00, No box. Just remote, MIC and power cord. Just ask for a manager and try for a better price. The most they can say is no. In my case, I am a business client and let them know that I need for a client and need to make a profit. Most managers are eager to dump the stuff the closer to renovation day. Hope this helps.

They came with the floor panels and owner's manual. No Boxes. The outside are Gloss Black and look pristine except for a 1000 finger prints, as do the grills. I did not test them for sound, had to run to another client. I will test tonight. Hopefully they play and sound as good as they look. I am a Silver Elite member so I have 45 days to check them out. If not happy, I can always flip for a profit or just return. I have been eyeing these for a while and couldn't pass up the deal. I am running them with a Pioneer SC-77 that I also picked up at Magnolia sale.

At what point does a Magnolia Best Buy get renovated (wear and tear, number of years etc.)?

Also, are some Magnolias not able to expand because of the limited foot print or the square footage of the entire store does not allow it?

I'm a frequent visitor at the Walden Galleria BB Magnolia in Buffalo NY. I have purchased hundreds of dollars there with great pride and good stuff too at great prices. Just love that store. Wish they had one in our BestBuy stores in Canada.

Thanks

Some stores are selected for renovation via some manner of magical corporate metrics (e.g. consistently hitting budgets, being in high-traffic areas or areas having a higher concentration of wealth). BB is trying to build out an increased number of these locations but the strategy is a "hub-and-spoke" style -- e.g. there's one Design Center location in the general area of a lot of other stores (stores with non-Design Center Magnolias and regular Best Buy stores); these stores can refer clients to that MDC location for product and service above and beyond what they can offer from their own assortment. The product carried by a design center location can't be special ordered through a regular best buy store or register.
