Best Buy Plans to Focus More on Small Businesses
New York City, The VP of Best Buy Co. Inc.’s business division said that it plans to focus on small business customers as a source of growth. "We think that right now there doesn't exist anyone that can be a single point of contact for small businesses to obtain—or to even be aware of— technology solutions that can improve their business," Tom Healy said. Healy said Best Buy will use its so-called "Geek Squad agents" to sell technology to small businesses. Best Buy's 12,000 "Geek Squad" employees offer technology assistance, such as making house calls, to help customers set up new computers. The retailer plans to hire roughly 600 new Geek employees this year.
