^^The deals get better depending on how far into the construction/refurbishment the store is. Generally new in box product will be transferred to other, still-open stores.
The "high end stuff" the guy spoke of refers to a Design Center's focus on higher-end product lines not carried by a regular Best Buy or Magnolia (e.g. Sonus Faber, B&W Diamond, REL, McIntosh, Rotel, Arcam, Oppo). They also focus on automation/integration products (Control4, Savant, Kaleidescape, Lutron, etc.).
