Best Buy reveals store numbers and locations in autumn
Carphone Warehouse shareholders are expected to ratify the joint venture plans with Best Buy at an extraordinary general meeting on 30 June. The company will then press ahead with the plans and is earmarking a presentation day in September, where management will reveal store numbers and locations as well as information about the products to be stocked.
The first wave of up to 10 stores is then expected to be rolled out quickly afterwards.
Carphone is already stocking laptops in 100 of its existing traditional stores, and is looking to increase this number.
