In the Mall

Does your local mall have a Best Buy Mobile Store in it?

Mine does, and I find it rather annoying. Not to mention it will make the rest of the kiosk look bad with high prices. I guess they want to take over, well that's business I guess.
For Best Buy, it may be more of a matter of survival to go this route though.
I know I find myself doing the very thing they complain about more often than not. Go down to the local Best Buy, and compare models of camera's, tv's, etc. and narrow down...
