Best Buy opens first 24-hour store in New York City
Minneapolis Best Buy Co. said Wednesday it will open its first 24-hour retail location in New York City’s Union Square.
Opening Nov. 13, the 48,000-sq.-ft. store will be located on the corner of 14th Street and 4th Avenue, in the heart of downtown Manhattan’s Union Square.
The company said the expanded hours will provide a much-needed resource for the downtown Manhattan community, including students from nearby universities and many people with nontraditional schedules.
“Today’s consumers have hectic lifestyles that don’t always conform to traditional retail hours,” said Brian Dunn, CEO, Best Buy. “New York has long been known as the city that never sleeps, making Manhattan the perfect location for our first 24-hour store.”
The new location will provide around-the-clock in-store service and support to customers, including Geek Squad services and in-store pick-up of items purchased via online or phone channels.
