Best Buy CEO Hubert Joly said Tuesday that the service is a way to unlock "latent" customer demand — the company has found that shoppers spend more at the home than they do at the stores.Best Buy, the nation's largest consumer electronics retailer, is trying to make itself indispensable to shoppers as people shop more online. It's been beefing up its customer service in the appliance areas of its stores.
