Best Buy is the latest retailer to announce that it is closing all stores due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The company will instead offer curbside pickup and delivery, much like many other retailers have done over the last week as the coronavirus pandemic evolves.
Like other retailers — including Apple — Best Buy’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak has been evolving at a rapid pace. The company originally intended to keep its retail stores open, but with limited hours and a maximum number fo 15 customers in a store at a time.
That changes today, however, with Best Buy CEO Corie Barry saying that the situation is “unprecedented and changing at a pace all of us are working to keep up with.” Starting Sunday, March 22, Best Buy is shifting entirely to curbside service and delivery.
What this means is that customers can place an order on the Best Buy website or in the Best Buy app and request pick up at their local store. If a customer is unable to place an online order, they can go to the store and have an employee go inside to check availability… 9To5 Mac
