I would've thought the same had I not been in Memphis, TN the last 2 weeks for work and seen their commercials over and over and over lol. I guess they're a pretty good size electronic chain in the south/southwest part of the country.

Actually they are an appliance and electronics chain with headquarters in Indianapolis, Indiana. From what I hear of them from family in the area they have a good reputation. From their website if you drew a line east from Chicago and another from Chicago south you would find their stores almost all in that area. They have over 200 stores.

They like to focus on customer service and having knowledgeable sale people who can actually help you. They are certainly not a hands-off kind of place like Fry's.

While I'm sure it won't matter on something like a tablet, they are also open to price negotiation on big ticket items like TVs and appliances.

There is one in Macon, Ga, about 1 hour from me. Very nice store, they try to compete with Best Buy in our area.
