Best Buy’s entry into China…first store to open in shanghai

…and I live 10 minutes away from it. It’s next to the well known electronic’s supermall, Metro City.

Looks like they have a ways to go still…

It’s scheduled to open in the beginning of December, just in time for the Christmas season. I’ll be curious to know what kind of items they stock and what kind of pricing they’ll institute. More importantly, will they have memory for my IBM Thinkpad?

In addition to building out their own stores, they’ve also acquired a majority interest in Jiangsu Five Star Appliances, the fourth largest consumer electronics retailer.

I wonder if Guomei, the current largest electronics retailer in China, is worried? They should – at least given my recent experience with them.
