Well, if the prices transfer, that could be a great deal for those of us in areas with no Best Buy. I kinda look forward to seeing what happens.

I don't see where it would make sense to transfer the prices to the new stores.

Most of the Musicland family is in malls and stripmalls, does a lot of teenage/mall-crowd business, and I'd guess a lot of let's-drop-in impulse buying. Whereas BB is always this huge warehouse set off by itself or as a mall anchor; it's more of a destination store. Not sure about what'll happen if there's no BB in the area; semms like ya gotta buy from Musicland, anyway.

Plus, when you're competing with yourself, there's really no reason to lower prices at all your stores....

Right now, the sam goody isn't competing with anybody--Circuit City, Sams Club, Wal Mart, K-Mart and virtually everyone except the other mall place has prices that blow Sam Goody out of the water. However, if they adopt a few more of best buy's policies regarding pricematching and selection, those of us in fairly rural areas (I think we apply) may benefit. Who knows, maybe the sam goody will close because it can't compete, which wouldn't help anyone here.

Regardless, if their desire is to help spur business in rural areas, offering similar prices to their Best Buy Store is the answer.
