Gateway stores closing – in comes Best Buy


Altought Gateway is closing its retail stores, it’s not out of the retail channel.
When Gateway first started its retail stores, I thought it was a good idea. But I guess consumer demand said no!
However Gateway recently announced, thanks to its new eMachines management the availability of two new Gateway-branded notebook PCs for the first time through Best Buy’s 622 retail stores nationwide.
As announced earlier this month, the move is a key step in Gateway’s strategy to offer its PCs beyond its popular direct channels. Next month, Gateway will also offer new desktop PCs available through Best Buy.
