Why Are Shreveport-Bossier Best Buy Stores Closing Early?
I walked up to Best Buy in Bossier Friday night at 7:09 p.m. I desperately needed to pick up some protection for my iPad, imagine my surprise when I saw that the store that once closed at 9:00 p.m. was closing 2 hours earlier than normal.
I Called the Best Buy in Shreveport and Found Out They Were Closed Too.
Keep in mind I was desperate to get this screen on my iPad before a big event the next day. So I decided to call the Best Buy in Longview, Texas as well, I was okay with a 45-minute drive, I was desperate for this item. No answer.
I Realized That Best Buy Changed Their Store Hours.
At least that's what the printout that I saw said. Why is Best Buy closing two hours earlier than normal?
Could Positive Covid-19 Cases Be to Blame?
I finally got into a Best Buy and I asked a gentleman named Austin why they were closing so early, he mentioned it wasn't just in the Ark-La-Tex, he claimed that all employees were notified of the business hours changing due to Covid-19. The Best Buy employee claimed that many people in the building were testing positive and corporate stepped in.
Remember When Best Buy Changed Their Store Hours and Limited the Number of People Entering the Store?
Back in March of 2021 Best Buy announced they'd shorten business hours and limit the number of people allowed in the store to 10 to 15 people. So clearly Best Buy is no stranger to changing store hours during a pandemic.
Several Best Buy Stores Claim This is Just Temporary.
Most stores in the Ark-La-Tex have told us that they will resume normal business hours on January 22, 2022. Of course, this all depends on how many new cases of Covid-19 we see.
