Best Buy to open 4 new outlet stores, add new product categoriesPublished 05/11/2022
Best Buy will open four new outlet stores, which feature open-box and clearance items at reduced prices, this summer and fall in select cities across the United States.
We have talked about our plans to double the number of outlets over the next year, and we’re excited to share that new stores will open in Chicago, Houston, Phoenix and Manassas, Virginia. (We currently have 16 outlet stores in cities ranging from Moreno Valley, California, to Kennesaw, Georgia, to Brockton, Massachusetts).
Our new Chicago, Phoenix and Manassas outlets will be remodels of existing Best Buy stores, and our current Houston outlet will move to a new location that’s three times bigger.
Customers have shown a growing interest in our outlet locations, not only because our experts are there to provide advice, but because they offer a wide assortment of open-box and clearance items at a discounted price. Even better, all Best Buy Totaltech™ membership benefits still apply, including free delivery and standard installation.
Here’s what customers can expect from our new outlet experience:
Expanded selection of products and services
Our outlet stores have always offered a wide assortment of discounted larger products like major appliances and televisions. Now, every new outlet will have an expanded assortment of products, including laptops, tablets, gaming products, mobile phones and more. All from brands customers know and love, but at a discounted price.
Every new outlet will also have a Geek Squad area where you can get the support you need on your tech.
Easier than ever to find and get your latest tech
Our outlet stores are also introducing more ways to shop and get your latest tech.

Creating less electronic waste
Our outlet stores are one of the ways we’re working to positively impact our environment — and help our customers do the same. By shopping at our outlet stores, customers are helping to limit waste by giving technology a new, longer life. That’s one of the steps of a circular economy, in which products are kept in use for as long as possible through repair, trade-ins and recycling.
