A Best Buy spokeswoman confirmed the largest consumer electronics retailer conducts 1 million car stereo installs a year. And Best Buy says 90 percent of the customers it surveyed say their auto installation was “done right the first time.”
Another little known fact about Best Buy is it offers window tinting in select markets. Best Buy also plans to expand window tinting in markets “ where it makes sense,” said the spokeswoman. Window tinting is available primarily in Best Buy’s Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois and Virginia markets.
You may remember that Best Buy launched a West Coast Customs (WCC) line this summer in select stores and on its web site. The company said it plans to expand the WCC line to additional stores.
We asked about plans for Car Toys to create in-store car stereo shops at Best Buy, but the Big Box chain had no comment on the matter.
Despite our pleading and prodding, this was about all the information we could wrest out of the chain on its car stereo plans.
