Best Buy’s Geek Squad tech support and installation services are additional customer service features that are valued by many customers.”
Therefore, while Best Buy needs to keep the prices of its offering at the lowest to be competitive, the company is able to gain differentiate itself from the competition through add on value propositions such as product demonstration and technical support.
