March 26, 2012, Burnaby, B.C. – Best Buy, Canada's fastest growing
retailer and e-tailer of consumer electronics, is moving into the
automated kiosk field with the launch of the Best Buy Express. The
launch will start with six kiosks at Toronto Pearson International
Airport in both terminals this month with plans for expansion
throughout the year.

Best Buy Express will offer more than 60 product skus, including
headphones, chargers, MP3 players, iPods, travel adaptors and more. If
you've ever forgotten your phone charger while travelling or wished
you'd picked up a pair of noise-cancelling headphones for a long
flight, the Best Buy Express is the perfect solution for the frequent
traveller.

"We are always on the lookout for new and innovative shops and services
that we can bring to the airport," said Janine Gervais, general manager
of retail for the GTAA. "Many of our guests are moving through the
airport quickly and are looking for efficient shopping options. The
Best Buy Express kiosks will fill that need for these guests while
providing them with well-known, name brand products they can trust."
