What???!! Closing Down!!??

hmmmm some of the posts on here get worse every day

Think we all knew that best buy was closing down

Nearest store to me is 265 miles. I might pop in to see if they've any bargains?

Good grief!!!! I'm in shock!!!! That would explain all those best buy closing down deals since October then!!!!!!

Bit of a shame they're closing down, I thought Best Buy were brilliant, still looking for a music docking system for my iPhone though, so may have to go there later.

correct !!!!! ALL THEIR SHOPS SHUT 2 WEEKS TODAY 15 JAN. only krappo left

awesome;....thanks for the heads up!(_;)

Don't believe you, in true HUKD style we need proof: Receipt, Photo, and blood of store manager

All thats left there is disabled parking but i imagine they have prolly been nicked by now.

Looks like it's back to Woolworths then

Prices are still higher than stores that are not closing down!

Merry Hill is full off own brand krapola and even that is still overpriced.

I got very lucky and avoided spending any money there in this sale!

I believe DFS have a sale on too, anyone shed any light...?

crap store, crap net store, dreadful customer service, good flaming riddance

But, if the 'vultures' didn't buy up these items, then the administrator would have to sell back to the trade at much lower prices, so actually, the 'vultures' help the creditors and the investors get at least som of their money back...

What are they doing with their electric vehicle chargers? will they still be active? or are they for sale too!?

Oh, ok. So the most likely super rich investors get back their pocket change while the rest of us are left with **** deals. Sounds fair....

Yeah, its carp.

Despite a generally poor closing down sale there have been some rather good bargains if you happen to be in the right place at the right time.

I saw Windows 7 proffesional for £90.
Windows 7 home upgrade for £35 (from starter)
Acronis True image home 2011 for £9.99 (bought this)
CD's at half price, generally coming out at £5 or less.
Reels of speaker cable at 60% off (less than a tenner)
Grado Headphones (RS1 and 2) 40% off (cheapest anywhere)
Assorted AV equipment, remaining few at half price.

The list goes on...........

Anyone know what's left in the Aintree store???

They god rid of loads of stock very early. I got my Xbox and wireless controller for £119 in November. Was good while it lasted. loads of tv's went on here, cracking deals but just the carp left now.

Precisely. I went into Best Buy and thought it was shocking. They priced their goods during the closing down sale as badly as they did pre-sale.

I had such high hopes for them when I heard the were 'coming over' from the US. But they've been carp and I'm glad they're going. (Obviously sorry for the staff, though.)

I have to agree. I thought this would be the place to be for electrical goods given the overseas "beef" they have but to my surprise I found they couldn't really care to much about their competition or they thought some different style of advertising would pull them through. Even trying to get rid of stock they seemed to have learnt little.

It could of course be that they choosen a bad time to set-up shop in the UK and had they started a few years earlier when everybody was more affulent they might have survived.

EDIT: it getting so cold in here I'm beginging to get icicles on the end of me nose

My point exactly - we are not 'vultures' if we buy goods from a company that is closing down...

Just been to the Derby store - what a joke! Don't waste your time going, prices are ridiculously high for a store that's closing down

can only comment on the '50%' off CD's DVD's fromt hat list, they prices had been pre hiked before 'cutting down' to still above the price of most competitors.

There's no doubt many items such as TV's, white goods are still high in the sale, particularly when the sale just got underway but now that items have been reduced further, bargains are materialising but store prices in general have taken time to come down to what was offered online (hence why online sold out quite quickly).

I've been keeping an eye on the Lakeside store to see if anything is worth buying over the sale period. Mostly came away with nowt but picked up a few bargains. Some from my list. There's probably a few things I'd liked to have had but unfortunately I've had to resist! Can't buy everything at once lol.
