A virtual Mecca for gear heads, this electronics giant hawks everything from booming sound systems to notebook-sized personal computers. – In Short
Founded in 1983, this high-tech haven is recognizable by its blue, box-like building stamped with a yellow price tag-shaped logo. Explore the wide, gadget-lined aisles and find brand-name goods including personal computers, video games, TVs, digital cameras, cell phones and fax machines. Choose from a slew of popular brands such as Canon, Microsoft, Samsung and Sony. In-house installation services are available for most car audio and video systems, home entertainment systems, satellite hook-up, and home appliances.
Worst service ever – DO NOT USE THIS BRANCH'S CAR STEREO INSTALLATION SERVICE. Their service is abysmal -- slow, inaccurate, and impolite. To simply have a stereo and speakers installed, I had to return to the branch multiple times. Ultimately, I spent 11 hours (& 2 hours in travel) waiting for installation on a job that should have taken 2 hours. Any big-box store that has an associated installation shop has little incentive to provide as quality services as stand-alone stores, and, as a virtual monopolist, certainly has the luxury to charge above-market prices. This experience exemplified the problems with going to such a store. If I had known the inconvenience this experience would involve, I never would have set foot in the store. Let my mistake inform your decision.
Best headache – This location is in perhaps the worst parking lot ever in Chicago. The drivers like to play chicken or not move at all. So, once you get inside, you'll find a very unhelpful staff and a very picked-through selection. Best Buy offers a lot, but find another location and go. This store is too hectic and limited.
