RICHFIELD, MN—Saying it would be a really huge help during a difficult time,
Best Buy CEO Corie Barry sheepishly pleaded with Americans on Thursday to
go out and buy a cord or maybe an adapter of some kind to support the
electronics retailer as it faces losses related to the coronavirus.

“We’re expecting lower sales and profits due to Covid-19, so if you guys could
swing by sometime and pick up a cable or possibly a phone charger, that
would be awfully great,” said Barry, adding that it wouldn’t have to be
anything expensive, like a 25-foot HDMI cable, but could just be an extra
coaxial cable, some speaker wire, or even a regular old extension cord for
when you need to plug in something that’s too far away from an outlet.

“It’s always good to have extra cables and stuff like that around. If you don’t
need it right now, you could just put it in a drawer with all your other cords.
Something to think about, anyway. And hey, while you’re in our store, maybe
you’ll want to pick up something extra like a small portable Bluetooth speaker
or a DVD of a movie you like. Might come in handy. Plus, we’d be so, so
grateful for that.” Barry went on to state that if you don’t want to purchase
any electronics at the moment, Best Buy also sells candy and soft drinks in
the checkout line, and everyone deserves to have a little treat now and then.

The part where tax payers bail out companies that make millions or billions in profit.

Ive noticed this is some kind of long running troll.   Only reason I have any monster cables is because they were on clearance.  Best thing good about them is a lifetime warrenty.

This coronavirus will be the death knell for many a retailer.  Amazon will emerge as so fucking dominant that it very will could get the standard oil treatment.

Well I guess they shouldn't have closed down the place 10 minutes early the last time I tried to shop there, which I will NEVER do again. Enjoy bankruptcy, fuckers!

­A "liquidity crisis" is their fault, not mine.  If you made billions of dollars over the years and didn't put some of it aside, well, tough shit.

There isn't enough equity capital in the world for these companies to save that much at that scale WITHOUT crashing the economy the other direction.

Google "paradox of thrift".

Any CEO of a narrow-margin big box retailer who stuffed his balance sheet with 2 months of operating expenses assuming zero revenue* would be fired for earning a ridiculously low return on equity in any of the 99 years when an historic pandemic is NOT raging.

This isn't like rich peoples' cabins built in fire-prone zones in the hills / mountains or beach houses that get predictably blown up every 7 years in Florida.

* (probably several years worth of earnings at thin margins)

there is still a need for stores like best buy, for times when you aren't picky and need to have it right now.
