News: Best Buy Rotherham set for June opening


Leading consumer electronics retailer, Best Buy, are set to open their new Rotherham store in June.

The 45,000 sq ft store at Parkgate Shopping is the first in Yorkshire and has created around 100 jobs.

Best Buy accounts for around 21% of the U.S. consumer electronics market and the family of brands and partnerships collectively generates more than $45 billion in annual revenue.

Best Buy joined with Carphone Warehouse in 2008 to create Best Buy Europe, and to launch the Best Buy brand in the UK. They recently opened stores in Hayes and Bristol and this weekend celebrated one year since it first successfully opened its doors to the UK market. Best Buy will operate 11 stores by the end of the year.

The Rotherham store will showcase the best in home cinema equipment, computing technology, entertainment devices, appliances, mobiles, music, movies and games. Best Buy Blueshirts – the in-store team – will also be on hand to help make buying technology easier by providing tailored and impartial advice.

Denis Copeland, centre manager at Parkgate Shopping said: "Best Buy is an exciting new addition to Parkgate Shopping which continues to evolve to offer the best possible experience for the local community.

"With other openings coming soon and the planned arrival of a new Frankie & Benny's restaurant later this year, there will be further employment and training opportunities for local people."

Currys Megastore, ASDA Living, Maplin and the Frankie and Benny's restaurant could create another 150 jobs at the park.
