    I remember wasting many hours in the Torrance store playing Road Rash on their 3DO display way back when.

    no kidding. i don't really miss tower either. i rarely bought music there because of how ridiculously expensive it was. i like spending money at brick and mortar stores, but i usually prefer independent music/record shops when it comes to music. i don't mind paying an extra couple bucks to buy from there (it's never $20+ though) instead of online or big box retailers.

    Me too. I bought two T.V.s about 8 years ago for my second home in AZ. The salesman said I should get two gold plated cables to hook them up for the best picture. Guess what. The T.V.s didn't have the hook up for the cables, and B.B. wouldn't take them back as I had opened the packages while I was setting them up. I sent them a letter and got a b.s. response, so I mailed in my cut up c.c. in with my final bill. Amazon works good for me

    If I were you jerseydevil I would check their website first to make sure they even have the product before I step foot into the store. The only time I ever buy anything from Best Buy is when I need to buy more Steam cards for my PC gaming addiction. Since my credit card offers 4x the points for purchases at Best Buy I only purchase items I know I can't return because it's bad enough dealing with idiots when you buy stuff but it's worse when you have to deal with different ones who can't think without a manager's hand up their rear.

    Years ago I went there looking for a new dishwasher, and a pimple-faced salesman started telling me about all the great features each of them had.

    I sat there looking at him, thinking, "how in the world does this kid know about how great this appliance is when he's probably never washed a dish in his life?"

    Indeliberate irony. Love it.

    I just spent over and hour washing dishes.

    Who wants to hire me out? And you won't hafta go to Best Buy.

    Years, ago, I use to frequent Best Buy and buy a movie or two. Those were good days.

    And I really miss Tower Records, despite the expensive prices, but they did have good sales every now. The irony here, haha, is that I could afford music more as a Teen than now. That's called downward mobilty.

    New Dishwasher? I'll be lucky when I can buy new dish washing gloves.

    Bought our flatscreens there, after doing some comparative shopping online and ordering them for in-store pickup. One of them went pffft not too long after, so we got a replacement pain-free. Other than that, I don't set foot in there if I can help it. For any kind of electronics, I usually go to Fry's.

    P.S. What's a CD?

    It's what us old folks who were raised on physical copies use our reading glasses on since the album has shrunk so much. Downloading is cute and all that but that, and the general ****e that passes for music these days is what has killed the music industry, but I digress. Now pull yer pants up and goddoffamylawn.

    CDs are these handy little discs I pop into my car for driving music in between copying them onto my massive hard drive of songs for home and flipping through the booklet. I never had a problem with Tower's prices - might be $16 plus tax for some, but these were CDs I could not get at Best Buy and back then there was stuff Amazon did not have. Heck even now there is stuff Amazon doesn't have, but there are smaller online stores like keeper's Century Media.
