Best Buy Customer Experience … You know there is trouble when a brick & mortor company
Below is the recent posts on the best buy facebook page…I think they have some serious problems.
The Best Buy Saga….
Scott Cohen posted to Best Buy Buying a digital camera. After all the research selected a Cannon. Best Buy if you’re going to be a brink & motor store, you need to stock merchandise. In 5 years, your stock (price) has gone from $50 to $25! I see something like a BORDERS in your future.
Scott Cohen and to think that you could have made this so easy after I called your customer service and asked for free next day delivery5 hours ago
Best Buy Hi Scott -From my understanding of your post, you’re concerned that the item you were looking to purchase was only available online and not in-store. Is that correct?-Coral4 hours ago
Scott Cohen first – it was only online. then you could not ship 2 day and waive the ship cost. So basically, for me the cost of the camera & extra battery would be more expensive than amazon by a lot.4 hours ago

Scott Cohen David, are you an employee of Best Buy? So what you are saying is that after over 15 years being involved in media, technology, advertising and running sales, business development, and client services for an eCRM company I do not know what… I’m talking about…well, that;s a pretty huge statement. With regard to your stock price, last I looked, 5 years ago it was over $50 per share, and today it closed at $24! But you go with your gut on this…it is a perfect case study for the next conference I speak at on eCommerce.See More7 minutes ago
Scott Cohen comments from some of my friends on facebook: “I went in to my local BB store to buy a computer a few weeks ago. It took me 30 minutes to “track down” a salesperson to help me. After I asked him a series of questions he couldn’t answer (or guessed at…) he took off to work with another customer. I left the store like the AFLAC duck leaving the barber shop ad after listening to Yogi Berra…” and “Best Buy??? Come on Scott…B&H is camera…” and “Amazon with overnight shipping is the ticket” and “Harrison does all of his shopping at BU through Amazon. It shows up in his room the next day or two days later, no additional charge. As he points out, “It costs me way more to go to the store.””
