Default Since when did Best Buy operate in the UK?

I had no idea of this until I went to PC World, Comet, Maplin and Currys today, I seen a best buy.

I thought that it can't be the same as what they get in the USA, as I thought they only operated in America. But it was. Pretty epic store tbh.

Anyone been in one?

They are pretty exciting. It's about all we have left around me.

Yep, lots of times, great store.

I'm in the US so they're pretty common.

Thought the electric car parking bays were rather strange, no one here uses electric cars.

They had special parking spots for electric cars?

TBH, its only useful for small things like wires, pc/video games and maybe stereos ect. I would never ever buy a whole computer from there. Ever. just. No.

A friend from another forum mentioned it a good few months back now. I've never been for the sole reason that I have no use to, all my electricals are from closer stores, such as curry's or Comet, all PC parts from Scan. Would like to go for one, just for a look around, but I think my closest one is ~80 miles away, so not worth it "just to have a mooch"
