Sign of the Times at Best Buy
Best Buy, the U.S. electronics retailer, is reorganizing its retail sales groups into one "connectivity business group" that will focus on sales of mobile phones, computers, tablets, e-readers and the appropriate service plans at Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile stores.
The products inside the CBG group make up more than half of Best Buy's in-store sales as well as representing the fastest growing sectors for the company, outside of computers. That tells you quite a lot about what "consumer electronics" means these days, as well as where the sales volume is generated.
Mobile phones and service plans are the largest generator of revenue at Best Buy.
The group will be comprised of 35,000 employees. Best Buy reorganizes around connected devices
