Best Buy opens 24-hour store in NYC Best Buy CEO Brian Dunn has announced that the company will be opening its first ever 24-hour store, in New York City.
The retail store will open on November 13th on 14th Street at Union Square, taking over one of Circuit City's old flagships locations.

The store is 48,000 square feet and Dunn says the retail location will remain open from 8:00 a.m. on Monday until Midnight on Saturday, straight. The store will then reopen on Sunday for 10:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m.

The hours will accommodate NYU students and other New Yorkers whose “hectic lifestyles that don’t always conform to traditional retail hours,” added Dunn.

Besides normal services, Geek Squad will be available around the clock as well and the new Best Buy will "boast the largest Best Buy musical instruments department in the United States, including lighting equipment and professional DJ equipment," says TWICE.

Although Best Buy's prices generally suck they occasionally have decent deals and being open 24/6 could help them instead of someone shopping online because Best Buy (or another store) is closed.

I find it interesting that they are closed for part of the day on Sunday, although I personally think they shouldn't be open at all on Sunday but that's my opinion.

Man, BB is really taking over CC's space eh? The only CC that i know of didn't get taken over by BB is the one in Whitestone, Queens (it was replaced by PC Richard). The Gateway mall CC is already replaced by BB and it's open. Now, Union Sq? Wow, it's not even that far from the 23rd St. BB. Holy smoke, BB is everywhere in NYC, the blue shirts are taking over Manhattan, lol.

Well, good for us i guess, plenty of stuff to go around :)
