CHICAGO - Hoping to cater to everyone from the garage guitarist to a
recording musician, Best Buy Co. Inc. is announcing a massive new initiative
that sets aside store space for an array of musical instruments and gear in
dozens of sites nationwide.

The nation's largest consumer electronics retailer will announce Tuesday
that it plans to open as many as 85 of the music centers inside its stores
by the end of the year and could add even more locations in the future,
executives told The Associated Press.

Each site will use about 2,500 square feet of retail space and include
roughly 1,000 different products with well-known brand names such as Fender,
Gibson, Drum Workshop and Roland.
