Default Queen City vs Best Buy

I have found that if you shop prices at Best Buy, Home Depot, HHGregg, Lowe's. etc. and then go to Queen City, they will often match the price. The individual service and knowledge at Queen City is better. Independence Blvd store is one of the best... long-time employees.

Chip Player is very hands on and involved in the day to day activities. Met him at the South Blvd store during a shopping trip and he came over and helped us when no one was available.

Even if he is plastered on tv and print ads, I would buy from him. Do you know Mr Best Buy or how about Mrs Circuit City?

He is also local and does a lot for this community.

Hey bud, I see good old Chip once a month at a local invitee-only speakers club. He pays $10,000/year to be a part of it. I am glad he is local and does things for the community but I still think it's dopey when people try to make themselves local celebrities by buying ad time. My perogative.

Can you read?
I said I am GLAD...G-L-A-D....he does things for the community but I flat out refuse to do business with companies who showcase their owners in commercials to create a mock-celebrity rather than conveying the benefits of their services in their ads.

This goes for Charlotte car dealers as well and especially the ones who put their kids in the commercials. That is so ridiculous.

Yes, Queen City has excellent customer service and you can usually get free delivery from them. Chip Player's ego aside, it's a good company to do business with.
