Best Buy: A Brief History of Integration
In October's issue of CE Pro, they report on the history of Best Buy's effort as a home integration company. It really goes to show you how big companies take multiple years to get an initiative going. 6 years later, you still wouldn't know that Best Buy is interested in anything else but selling you boxed CE goods.
From the article:
While builder-related efforts are particularly strong in Best Buy's backyard
of Minneapolis/St. Paul, the company has made inroads nationwide including
California, Florida, Denver and Columbus, Ohio. Participating builders include
Centex Homes, Brookfield Homes, Pulte Homes, Lennar, Ryland Homes and US Home,
according to the company's website.
