I hope this works out for Schulze and the investors. In the long run, it may help save this company and a whole lot of jobs.

Sorry, but besides ego, Shulze's attempt to buy back this company makes no business sense. The era of the Big Box is over

I would recommend that people take a look at the Bloomington store. Their approach is more customer friendly. They plan on making these changes throughout the country. They are making a one stop store, and doing a good job at it. Best Buy with survive. They have a better chance than Radio Shack.

Ugh, so what? He will borrow billions to buy company. If it goes belly up, does it matter? We can still buy tv's at Walmart. He had a good run. Built up company. Sold it for billions, walked away, got bored, bought it back. Next story.
