Best Buy Just About Ready to Open on Michigan Avenue

The new Best Buy showcase store in the John Hancock Center is rapidly approaching “finishing touches” stage.

The signs have been mounted on the exterior granite of the building.  Most of the window displays are in place, and peeking behind them, you can see that most of the shelves are stocked.

Nicely, the windows each have a different Chicago theme.  One is professional photography at the Art Institute .  Another is point-and-shoot at Wrigley Field .  Another is music at Navy Pier .  Nice touches.  Hopefully the visual people will keep it up.

There’s an invitation-only VIP reception at the store on Wednesday, May 13, 2009.  As we told you last month , the store officially opens Saturday, May 16th.
