    You seem to want an answer to a question which isn't clearly asked.

    Yes, Best Buy has BB-branded stores in Canada. Yes, BB bought out FS. Given how businesses usually work, stuff is probably being shipped out of one or two main warehouses.

    What exactly do you want to know?

    It was news to me. One more place to check when buying movies online I guess, although their prices haven't been very good on any of the titles I've checked so far.

    Interesting, but not necessarily a competing source vs Future Shop as they are both owned by the same parent company (Best Buy).

    it just makes it seem like theres a competition to the consumers...

    but yeah, free shipping.. good stuff, some stuff you find on BB you cant find at futureshop

    PeterK,

    Yes, Best Buy bought Future Shop at least two years ago. In fact, they bought it long before Best Buy's started appearing here.

    Jack,

    I think the relevant info has been provided, for us Canadians, eh!

    Martin.
