    I found this article interesting after not finding my iPad 2 today at my BB.

    "The company will be focusing on key consumer products such as mobile phones, tablets, gaming (possibly used games), and is looking to channel the savings from cuts into small-format stores."


    Im no market or admin guy but I wonder if smaller stores means less chances of having Apple booths in them?? Or am I looking at it the wrong way?

    It sounds like they are being proactive and making some changes before they really start to fall.

    If Apple products are selling well, they'll get shelf space.

    not to surprised by this. The Best Buy around where I lived took a hammering from Fries when it opened up. Fries s bigger and has a wider selection of the things i am generally looking for so I tend to go there.

    Sounds like they will be getting rid of appliances and other things that are not selling well.

    Reducing store size means lower heating and lighting costs; halogen lights do cost rather a lot to use.

    If they can't sell, they'll whittle down everything else and still make a big grin and say "Big profits, come here shareholders!"

    I don't know about your last bit, but seeing them sell GTS 250s for $200 is indicative of worst buy.
