Price matching is going to become a trend soon as many retailers promote it. Best Buy seems to have allayed any apprehensions among the outside crowd regarding showrooming. In fact, the giant hardware store is ready to lend its space for usage as showrooms.
But that crucial phase is all over now. Last year, the lack of an online presence sent its stocks into a downward spiral. But it has recovered from that vital deficiency and so now the profits are soaring. With the arrival of new CEO, Hubert Joly, Best Buy has converted showrooming into a whole new phenomenon. More interested onlookers are being converted into enthusiastic consumers.
Just a year ago, there were rumors rife that showrooming would be the final nail in Best Buy’s coffin. But that has proved to be a load of nonsense. Best Buy has proved once and for all that there was nothing to fear but fear itself.
Moreover, Best Buy seems to have tamed the term and used it to its advantage. The CEO has been outspoken in his endorsement of showrooming. He says it is the love of his life. And the fact that the shoppers feel comfortable with Best Buy’s special deals and discount offers only goes to boost the company’s image. It has literally co-opted showrooming. And it shows!

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
