I dont understand this? This company employs people, pays them money for providing a service. If you don't agree with the service don't shop there or support it. Where do you work? Perhaps they should go out of business as well? Wishing for anyone to be jobless is cruel, and slightly close minded. Please keep that in mind before you personally condemn hundreds of people if not thousands to losing thier jobs.

Just my 2cents.gif

On Topic:

I wonder if thier credit card model has anything to do with thier quarterly losses? I have a friend that buys a lot of stuff through thier credit program and I find it difficult to fathom how they stand to make a profit with such low/non-existent interest rates. Im sure that is just part of the puzzle though.

I think It's more dependant on whether or not Best Buy fields thier own distrubution centers or if they hire the services of LTL carriers. Running your own distribution center can be quite costly, but you tend to have less lost product from a 'shrink' perspective. LTL can be cheaper cost wise (flat fee per pallet/weight and mileage), however you have a higher risk of product being lost or stolen due to it being transfered by non-company employees.

It may also be a matter of inefficiency in how they handle thier product from a inbound to outbound path. Lots of companies lose a good bit of money in labor due to this problem. That's why they employ people like me thumb.gif
