Worst Buy is their own enemy. They just don't usually carry anything that people would want to buy, especially in computers. They have heaps of cheap HP garbage - pass; and then the shelves of defective Toshibas; and then people find out that they sell special computers that have thrifted components, like inferior battery packs. Of course, they don't carry some of the obvious products. In Canada, it is even more insane, since they also own Future Slop, which usually has better prices, well, sometimes.
Not that they are always the worst - they do have some good specials from time to time, but then, I don't know if a company can remain in business based on knocking $50-$100 off of every item, and only selling the sloppy seconds, like cheezy HP Vision systems, and some mangled Apple cast offs. They even manage to stock a bottom end Acer Pentium system at $150 more than one can buy it at full retail elsewhere.
Maybe people on boards of directors should have to actually go in and attempt to shop at their stores. Like a few months ago, I wanted to buy an eReader for my wife - and really, if it wasn't for the $50 off, and the lack of time to drive to the US to buy it at WalMart or something - I would have walked out without one, simply because the dude was more fixated in fooling around with his Telxon wand than to serve any customers.
The conditions in retail stores these days is excellelent for saving wads of cash. They either don't carry it, don't have it in stock, or simply don't care. Even our local WalMart looks like it was looted by the herds after Katrina - even worse when a place like Worst Buy doesn't have any of the basics that I would expect in stock (or even on order).
