Best Buy Union Square NYC to Open 24 Hrs, Ruins Student Excuses
A bevy of retail opening announcements are coming in this weekend aren’t they? The newest one is a Best Buy in Union Square. What makes this one so special? It will be open 24 hours during the weekday. Saturdays and Sundays look pretty regular.
24 hours a day you say? YES. Good news and bad news. The good: you can splurge there and play Rockband or Guitar Hero all day all night until security kicks you out.
The bad news. No more excuses for students who procrastinated on their papers and run into trouble. That means you can go and buy ink and paper for your printer when you have a report due the next morning. Need to burn a CD for your project due? Best Buy has you covered. Have a PC and need to fix that stupid “blue screen of death“? Geek squad to the rescue.
It should be noted that the new Best Buy will be stomping all over Circuit City’s grave, because the retail space is the exact same location.
To celebrate the festivities, Bon Jovi will be performing live at the new store when it opens next Friday, November 13, one day before the new upper west side Apple store. So which one will you camp out for? Smells like a PC vs. Mac debacle to me!
