A Smaller Footprint for Best Buy
Best Buy understands that its future is smaller. The slow demise of the Big Box store will encourage the retail giants to pare down their store size and accommodate a store format that will fit in smaller urban locations and sell fewer SKUs. Additionally Best Buy has experienced a reduced demand for floor space due to the digitization of music and now computer software as well as an increasing propensity for consumers to shop online. Perhaps RadioShack will experience a revival of its once ubiquitous electronics goto shop, but I think a resurgence would require a re-branding effort on their part.
