Best Buy plans on adding up to 1,000 stores focused on mobile

They should buy Radio Shack, re-brand the stores and change the look and layout.

I sort of agree with you but on the flip side, will they sell the same products that Radio Shack sells? I know that some products are similar but there are still things that Radio Shack sells that Best Buy doesn't. If they're strictly a mobile store then I'm sure they won't have these products. When in comes to radios, GPS devices, scanners, CB, antennas, wires and cables, hardware parts etc Radio Shack is occasionally a great choice. I like Best Buy over Radio Shack anyday but there are still a few things I can find at Radio Shack that isn't at Best Buy. I just hope if Best Buy aquires Radio Shack they at least agree to supply the products that Best Buy hasn't before.

Radio Shack only sells cell phones because it needs something to sell other that the junk that people buy for the Holidays and the other unique electronic, computer and radio parts that it stocks. I think that best buy is better off going off on its own and not buying the dead weight and problems that will come with dealing with Radio Shack. Best Buy has better brand recognition and is a much "healthier" brand than Radio Shack.

No! BestBuy has is becoming a monopoly in the Electronic market. Radioshack is pretty much the only other company left and they don't even compare. What happened to the days of Circuit City, CompUsa, Incredible Universe?? I know of smaller franchise like Mircrocenter and Fry's but I don't think Bestbuy has a lot to worry about. Their pretty much the Wal-Mart of electronic stores, to bad their prices don't agree.
