Best Buy goes outdoors


Best Buy, the consumer electronics retailer, is venturing into the outdoor living category, according to several news reports.

The Richfield, Minn.-based company has begun testing several product lines dedicated to outdoor living, including grills, pergolas, fire pits, outdoor heaters, lights and patio furniture. The new offerings also include rock-shaped speakers and HDTVs specifically designed for outdoor use.


The products are available in an undisclosed number of California Best Buy stores, as well as on the company’s web site, ranging in price from $11.99 for solar stakes to $5,703.99 for a pergola with privacy wall.


Other recent new Best Buy product categories have included musical instruments and electronic bikes. Best Buy could not be reached for comment on this report.
